Two thousand fed academic insight at University's Sci-Enza

Posted on June 01, 2009

“The science communicators served as a positive reflection to the learners. The learners opened up more to them during their interactive presentations and asked personal career related questions that they would perhaps not have had the courage to ask if it was not to their graduate peers,” says Horak.

One of the scarce skills graduates who also delivered a presentation on the careers in agriculture was Paul Ntshabele. “The learners were intrigued by the exciting careers in agriculture such as agronomy, horticulture and soil science. They asked many questions and were grateful for the exposure,” says Ntshabele.

Another science communicator, Nadine Broodryk reinforced the sentiments by emphasising that the learners were enriched by their personal experiences and studies. The realisation that there is so much out there that can be done to benefit the country is what she hopes the learners will take home with them.

Several exhibitors were there and they also had the opportunity to further enrich the learners with their contact sessions.
