We at A White House Guest House would just like to thank all our guests for staying with us during this years’ 2014 Scifest.
Here are just a few things that some of you maybe didn’t know about the Scifest.
Scifest Africa, South Africa’s National Science Festival, was established in 1996 to promote the public awareness, understanding and appreciation of science and mathematics, to facilitate the learning of these fields in an informal way, and to encourage the youth of South Africa to follow careers and become leaders in these fields.
Scifest celebrating the theme “Into the space!”
Schools from all over the Eastern Cape came to view the festival this year in our little town Grahamstown.
An expected 65,000 visitors attended the festival this year. Over 500 events that will explore spaces big and small, such as anatomy and the brain, astronomy, the atmosphere, architecture, biotechnology, the 50th anniversary of the Canadian Space Agency, geographical regions, nanotechnology, psychology, underground and underwater exploration, space sciences, the SKA, the universe, and any other space you can think of, including good old parking spaces!
Thank you for all our wonderful guests that stayed with us over this period. It was an absolute pleasure to meet you. We look forward to seeing you all for another visit, or over the next bigger and better 2015 Scifest.
Have a lovely and restful Human Rights Day!
~And…. Jolandi and all our lovely staff at A White House Guest House~
