Africa Technology Hub
By Dr. Tyra Oldham, LAND sds, March 26, 2013

The National Science Festival “SCIENCE ON THE MOVE!” was held last week, 13-19 March 2013. This years SCIFEST AFRICA 2013 in Grahamstown, held on the Eastern Cape sought to determine Africa’s technology capacity. The learning to determine how Africa could be a science hub is in process. The information shared about a continent rich in knowledge, resources and desire for growth is what is needed to combat a intelligence gap.

“The National Science Festival is a high-profile event that offers visitors a quality relevant, stimulating and progressive programme featuring 50 exhibitions, 21 lectures, 14 Talkshops, 42 workshop titles, and more than 400 other interactive events including, but not limited to, activity zones, the Afrobot Amateur Robotics Tournament, art and science masterclasses, a Children’s Science Festival, educational theatre, field trips, a fun run, game drives, a hobbies fair, iRhini Science Festival, the laser show, murder mysteries, quizzes, Science Café Series, science Olympics, site visits, a sleepover, Speed-Date-a-Scientist Series, wine tasting, and the incredible new Water World venue hosted by SAIAB.”
“Scifest Africa 2012 was attended by 72,000 visitors from South Africa, Botswana, Lesotho, Mozambique, Namibia, Swaziland and Zimbabwe, and featured contributions from government departments, listed companies, museums, NGOs, research facilities, science centres, science councils, SMMEs and universities, both from South Africa and abroad.”
When the goal is to build capacity there are boundless opportunities to generate change. It will take nations to perform deep analysis about the future to make sure that they too are competitive but more so, serving the needs of its people for their betterment.
