National Science Day RU Open Day 2017

Date Released: Mon, 7 August 2017 10:20 +0200

On Saturday, the 5th of August we had 300 Grade 9 learners from surrounding schools attend our National Science Day RU Open Day 2017. Our Science and Pharmacy departments and research groups along with SAIAB, Albany Museum and Amakhala Game Reserve offered 20 interactive activities to the young learners with the aim of promoting science and maths as subjects and career options. Thanks to all the departments who offered fun activities.


We had over 30 Science and Pharmacy Faculty students volunteer for the day, they assisted with coordinating the day and chaperoning the young learners around out campus.

Thanks to all of you who assisted.
