27 July to 31 August
National Science Week (NSW) is an annual celebration of science, engineering and technology, attracting thousands of learners and members of the public to workshops, science shows and lectures, which are held at universities, schools, science centres and public facilities countrywide led by the Department of Science and Technology.
Various stakeholders, role players and interest groups conduct activities that promote awareness of the value of STEMI to people’s daily lives.
The Mzansi for Science portal was created to raise awareness around the role of science, technology and innovation, celebrate unsung South-African heroes and also encourage South Africans to study, support and invest in it.
Each year a different theme is chosen and activities are offered around the theme to the target audiences.
