• Science Adventure Camp at Boyden Observatory and Science Centre in Bloemfontein

    Huge success! Trip enjoyed by all!

    NITheP and the UJ Science Centre (Faculty of Science University of Johannesburg, Soweto Campus), hosted 5 learners to attend the 2011 Boyden Camp. They were:
    Lynette Ntuli
    Relebohile Sibeko
    Marcus Madumo
    Rejoice Ratlhallane
    Ernest Khotso

    Prof Azwinndini Muronga, the Director of the UJ Science Centre, drove the students from Soweto to Bloemfontein where they stayed at the Retief Camp site next to Maselspoort from the 7th to the 9th of July 2011.

    The Programme included demonstrations (biodiesel synthesis), team building activities and various lectures from micro organisms to physics and maths activities. There was an exciting rocket building and launching on the last day and was enjoyed by all. NITheP would like to thank Prof Matie Hoffman for inviting NITheP to be part of this exciting outreach event. We hope to do the same again next year!
