National Science Week

National Science Week is an annual initiative of the Department of Science and Technology where science is appreciated and celebrated with different activities. We have been involved in organising the RU Science Faculty Open Day which takes place during National Science Week. This has been going since 2016. We host Grade 9 learners in the different Science departments and introduce them to some of the research that is taking place. In the Department of Zoology and Entomology, we display an interactive exhibition highlighting both the direct and indirect threats currently posed to natural, healthy ecosystems by invasive species.
