SA Science Chat Evening
Date: Wednesday 9 December 2015
Time: 18:30 for 19:00
Venue: Cape Town Science Centre
The Department of Science and Technology, SKA South Africa and the Cape Town Science Centre (CTSC), invites you to a FREE three-course dinner with a large serving of SKA science!
Join us at the CTSC, where you will be able to dine with Dr Jarita Holbrook and young, vibrant scientists and chat about the SKA SA project.
Journey with us to the Karoo Desert, the land of the |Xam people, where the largest telescope in the world is being built, the Square Kilometre Array. Discover the astronomy tradition of the people living in the Karoo today – descendants of the |Xam. Journey further to other parts of Africa through the lens of their astronomy traditions to see the different ways that Africans viewed the heavens. Your guide is astrophysicist and cultural astronomer Dr. Jarita Holbrook of the University of the Western Cape.
The SA Science Chat evening is a great place for engaging scientists, experts and the general public in a relaxed yet intellectually stimulating environment, a forum for ages 12 to 100!
There are only 80 seats available at the SA Science Chat evening and will be booked on a first come first served basis. Bookings: FULLY BOOKED
What a great way to end the year…
