NATIONAL SCIENCE WEEK 2015 in GEORGE 3 - 7 Aug 15 Featured

Wednesday, 29 July 2015 09:07

3 – 7 August 2015

National Science Week is an annual countrywide celebration of science that aims to promote science and raise greater awareness of the importance of science and technology in today’s world. The emphasis is on fun to encourage learners to choose maths and science as school subjects and as careers later in life.

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)
• 6 August: Pacaltsdorp Laerskool
• 7 August: George Suid Laerskool
