Peter Macinnis has been involved in bringing science to the general public for many years. Formerly a science teacher, he has written a number of school textbooks and science readers, and writes for a number of magazines for adults and children. He left teaching to work as a bureaucrat, first at Sydney's Powerhouse Museum and later at the Australian Museum, before returning to teaching once more, combined with part-time writing. Over the years, he has recorded many talks for radio programs developed by the ABC Science Unit. For the past three years, he has been a full-time writer for multi-media products with WebsterWorld, an Australian online encyclopedia, and he edits The Communicator, the organ of the Australian Science Communicators.
