Museum Education officers Akhona Lukhozi and Marsha Kalika will be attending the South Africa National Science Festival (SciFest) in Grahamstown in March. Scifest a platform for scientists from around the world to showcase and share their work.

The KZN Museum will be covering the topics like The Power of H2O; Discover your element as well as Water is matter and Filtration is purification aimed at various grades, during workshops and exhibitions throughout the week. The activities will be interactive, stimulating and will allow learners to think out of the box whilst they interact with objects that promote optimal understanding. Learners will be exposed to the significance, threats and a variety of purification mechanisms related to water availability through power point presentations. The Museum will also feature their “Museum in a Box” will emphasise and allow learners to interact with stimulating objects that make up filtration systems. A short video and worksheet will be distributed for completion and learners will end the session by creating their own home made filtration system using recyclable materials. This further integrates the concept of environment by utilising waste as an input thereby, creating a new product and fulfilling the closed circuit concept. Ms Kalika will also be feature at SciFest as an MC at one of their events, an evaluator on a panel for a competition, will host their sunset show as well as be part of Scifest’s “Speed date a scientist” event.
