The South African Agency for Science and Technology Advancement (SAASTA), a business unit of the National Research Foundation, with the mandate to advance public awareness, appreciation and engagement of science, engineering and technology in South Africa, recognises the importance of promoting science communication and awareness in all nine official languages, through various science competitions and its Youth Science and Technology Journalism (YSTJ) programme.
