Have you ever wondered how something works? How something is made? How a scientist came up with a new idea?
Have you ever wished that a scientist could explain in simple terms how and why a complex thing came about, and how it functions?
Sci-Bono is an initiative by the Gauteng Department of Education to make science more accessible to the public. The Sci-Bono Discovery Centre is housed in the historic Electric Workshop in Newtown, Johannesburg. The programme Speak2aScientist takes place on the last Thursday evening of the month.
Come tonight, Thursday 1 August, 18h00 for 18h30 and listen to Dr Sarah Whiley of Lodox Systems talk about a revolutionary X-ray scanner that had its birth on the diamond mines, and is now found in trauma hospitals and mortuaries world-wide.
As a starter, listen to Jenny Crwys-Williams on Talk Radio 702 at 14h00 this afternoon, when she interviews Mr Christian di Zio, the Sales & Marketing Manager of Lodox. The interview will highlight Lodox’s involvement with the Sci-Bono Speak2aScientist programme.
