Every day will kick off in the hall with an edutainment in the form of a hip-hop and rap session by Hakkiesdraad Hartman, an astronomy display and, if the weather permits, a look at the source of all energy, the sun. Then it is off to the classrooms where subject experts will introduce groups of about 20 learners to the many possibilities and pleasures of science and technology. The interactive activities will cater for a wide range of interests. Youngsters will be able to learn more about subjects such as maths, physics, energy, statistics, fynbos gardening, energy efficient technologies, permaculture, indigenous knowledge, painting with indigenous materials and the use of light in medicine. They will even be shown how to do tricks on a BMX bicycle, using energy, momentum and geometry principles.
Interactive activities will be offered daily from 08:00 to 12:00 at one of five different venues:
• 3 August: Blanco Community Hall
• 4 August: St Mary’s Primary School, Rosemoor
• 5 August: Thusong Service Centre (Thembalethu)
