Science and Pharmacy Faculty Open Day

Date Released: Tue, 8 August 2017 11:02 +0200

Last Saturday, the Faculty of Science and Pharmacy hosted its joint annual
Open Day. The event was attended by 300 Grade 9 learners from our local
schools who attended over 20 activities offered by RU, Albany Museum, SAIAB
and the Amakhala Foundation. It was wonderful to see staff and 36
undergraduate students running the activities and assisting as chaperones.

RU also hosted the annual Eskom Expo. A total of 177 learners submitted
their projects for the competition that were judged by 97 volunteers judges
and 3 moderators from The faculties of Science and Pharmacy. In total, six
gold, ten silver, thirty four bronze, and twenty nine merit awards were

A huge thank-you is extended to Kim and Joyce for the Open Day arrangements,
and to Kevin Lobb and the Scifest team for the Expo arrangements.

The university will be hosting schools from the broader Eastern Cape next month
on the 8th September for a general Open Day.

See you there!
