Namibia will host a Science Week that consists of interactive activities for schools and the public with screening of films under the theme ‘Humboldt and the Web of Life’.
The series of activities and experiments will take place from Oct. 14 to 19 with the aim to bring information on science to the community.
The week-long program which will be hosted by the Goethe-Institute Namibia and local partners will be facilitated by Imani Scietechnology Investment.
The Goethe-Institute Namibia on Tuesday said the films of the project’s sub-component, Science Film Week, were sourced from the Goethe-Institute’s Science Film Festival, an initiative that through short films promotes science education and aims to raise awareness of topics including sustainability, climate change, and environmental issues.
“This third edition of Science Week in Namibia is unique as the event will for the first time be hosted at a local school in Windhoek, Frans Aupa Indongo Primary School in Katutura,” the Goethe-Institute added.
The decision to host this year’s event was made in the light of bringing information on science to the community and a selection of the films will be screened for the public at the Namibian Scientific Society in Windhoek and the Swakopmund Museum, the Institute added.
This year’s partners include the World Food Programme, National Commission on Research, Science and Technology, Scientific Society Swakopmund, Namibian Scientific Society and Ministry of Mines and Energy. Enditem
