National Science Week 2008

National Science Week, an initiative of the Department of Science and Technology (DST) is a countrywide celebration of science involving various stakeholders and/or role players conducting science-based activities during the week. For the fourth year running, the DST has decided to run National Science Week in all nine provinces simultaneously at multiple sites per province.

The South African Agency for Science and Technology Advancement (SAASTA), a business unit of the National Research Foundation (NRF), will continue to play the role of National Project Manager for the National Science Week 2008 (NSW8).

The focus week will run from Saturday 10 May 2008 to Saturday 17 May 2008. In addition to contributing to science, engineering and technology among various sections of the population, the National Science Week is intended to expose learners to science-based careers, particularly disadvantaged sections of the population.
