From the 10th -14th July, Cape Leopard Trust ran their annual week-long holiday programme. This year, their holiday program was working in conjunction with a Cape Town based NGO, BRAVE Rock Girl (http://www.rockgirlsa.org/)
After her first encounter with an Iimbovane workshop at Scifest 2017, Ayla van der Merwe, a Gr.10 learner from St Patricks Christian Brothers' College (Kimberly) came to visit the Iimbovane Outreach Project for two weeks as a volunteer to experience life as a scientist.
The Iimbovane Outreach Project has received a generous donation of books, which will be used to help in the teaching of biodiversity science to the high school learners.
On Friday the 17th February 2017, eleven intrepid pupils from Touwsrivier Primary School’s Science and Maths Club joined Iimbovane for a short workshop, at Stellenbosch University. The pupils ranged in age from twelve to fourteen.
From the 11th to 14th of March this year, the Iimbovane team could be found at the Albany Museum, in Grahamstown. Here they facilitated their “Awed by Ants” workshop, chosen as one of close to 80 workshops to present at this year’s SciFest Africa – South Africa’s largest national science festival.
