New Exhibits
Two new volunteers, Brigitte Götz and Bafana Gweba, recently joined the SANSA team to assist Elisa Fraser (SANSA Science Advancement Manager) with the Science Advancement Programme for 2013.

The volunteers are graduates from the University of Stellenbosch. Bafana has a BSc (Hons) in Mathematics and is originally from Mdantsane, Eastern Cape. Brigitte has a BSc in Molecular Biology and Biotechnology and matriculated at Hermanus High School. They are extremely excited about their future at SANSA and look forward to exploring space science as well as promoting it to the youth.

Along with our new volunteers, we are delighted to announce three new fascinating exhibits to our Science Centre which demonstrate satellite communication.

To see our new exhibits, the Space Weather Centre and to learn all about SANSA, join the Space Science team in Hermanus every Wednesday at 11:00 for a free tour of our facilities.
