Scifest Africa is South Africa's largest science festival. The theme for 2017 was Tour de Science, which references the United Nations International Year of Sustainable Tourism for Development. Scifest Africa is one of the opportunities to give back to the community and share the knowledge gained through scientific studies.

The Institute for Water Research (IWR) had an exhibition that took the visitors on an aquatic journey. The IWR students used hands-on activities to take the visiting scholars through fundamental water processes and explained the use of aquatic insects as indicators of water quality.
