Overview | Science Education | Science Awareness | Science Communication
As part of National Science Week 2021, the Science Engagement team has produced a recorded virtual tour exhibition that explores the facilities at iThemba LABS’s Materials Research Department (MRD). The exhibition is meant for public audiences to gain access to information about different research projects and hear from our experts how accelerators are used to conduct novel research for the benefit of society. The exhibition will be accessible to public audiences throughout the country via an online portal hosted by NRF-SAASTA and the Department of Science and Innovation (DSI).

Supporting young people through motivational storytelling
Bridging the GAP through technology
Enhancing the teaching and learning of Physical Science
Our science education programme aims to contribute to strengthening and supporting science understanding, teaching and learning by engaging educators and learners in our schools through bringing the world of accelerator-based science into classrooms.
Our science awareness programme aims to improve the levels of awareness, enjoyment and interest in accelerator-based science for all of society
The science communication component of the Science engagement division aims to facilitate information sharing with education stakeholders and the public, through our various communication portals including public lectures, social media, printable resources and articles for popular science magazines.
