National Science week has kicked off at the KZN Museum with a jam-packed week of activities both in the Museum and at various other locations. The Museum has set up exhibitions at the Liberty Midlands Mall, Eastwood Library and Bessie Head Library, all with content around climate change and plastic pollution all with a view to understanding the harsh realities of climate change. The Museum has so far seen lots of schools visiting this week for lessons Climate Change Apocalypse and Lego in Science. Still to come are science shows, the Archaeology of Garbage, and Traditional Leaders in the Environment. The Museum is also giving away 'Portulacaria afra' otherwise known as spekboom, a proudly South African plant that improves the quality of air we breathe & helps fight climate change - it’s edible, water-wise, easy to grow & suitable for all seasons, during the course of National Science Week.
