Science Fridays @ Stellenbosch is an opportunity for lively debate about issues at the interface of science and society. It is free and open to anyone interested in how science connects with our daily lives.

This series of public science events will be hosted by the Centre for Research on Evaluation, Science and Technology (CREST) at SU. CREST hosts South Africa’s first Chair in Science Communication (SciCOM), as well as a Centre of Excellence in Science, Technology and Innovation Policy (SciSTIP).


SciBraai, a proudly South African NPO dedicated to science journalism, communication and outreach. SciBraai began on Heritage Day 2013 - Anina Mumm and Engela Duvenage in 2013 launched the website,, to feature stories about South African research, technology and innovation, and the people behind the discoveries. This blog welcomes all South Africans to go behind the scenes of local science and exploration endeavors. It’s a place to share stories about the scientists themselves and the interesting, little-known activities that are often left out of research journals. A place to learn more about the stuff that makes South African science and its people tick. A place to feel inspired about what South Africans are discovering on home soil and abroad. Because local is lekker, no matter what language you use. SciBraai's following has grown in the past years, and we are now on Facebook, Twitter and Instagram. We've also begun organising real-life braai's where we share round-the-fire stories about South African science and scientists.
