The KZN Museum is participating in a collaborative Enviro Reach event at a Traditional Healers Forum in Ndwedwe this month. The partners include DARD, EDTEA and the KZN Museum. Marsha Kalika, Chief Education Officer: Outreach - KZN Museum, will focus on creating sustainable clean electricity utilising vegetables and the topic “Filtration is Purification” will be discussed and demonstrated. In addition the Museum will be facilitating the distribution of Natural Science and Life Science as well as Maths Lit books, sponsored by Mr Greg Gopal from the Exam fever. Ms Kalika will also do a presentation of electricity generation using apples, lemons, potatoes, tomatoes, onions and coke. This will stimulate excitement and provide alternative options available for energy production. The launch event for this outreach initiative will be held on the 25 March at the Nodwengu Traditional Council in Ndwedwe.
