National Science Week (NSW) is an annual event aiming to exhibit and communicate awareness in science in South Africa. It is an initiative of the Department of Science and Innovation (DSI), a countrywide celebration of science involving various stakeholders and role players conducting science-based activities during the week.
The NSW 2021 will be conducted through information and communications technologies (ICT). Investigation conducted has revealed interesting association of South Africans with various ICTs, which if adequately exploited would exponentially expand the reach of the science engagement campaign. It has become a tradition that the NSW takes place during the first week of August. Sustaining this practice, the NSW 2021 will take place from 1 – 7 August 2021.
