Science Engagement And Development Seminars (SEADS)
The Western Cape is host to many science engagement initiatives. From University community outreach to non- profits, private citizens and organisations engage with the public and use science and technology to stimulate development. While everyone is busy running those programmes, there is yet to be a forum for practitioners of science and technology engagement and development to come together and share their work. The Inter-University Institute for Data Intensive Astronomy (IDIA) and UWC set up the Science Engagement And Development Seminar series to address this gap.
The intended audience is meant to be diverse: Anyone interested in community engagement, science outreach, education, development and more is welcome. We especially welcome interested students.
The Inter-University Institute for Data Intensive Astronomy was honoured to have Prof. Ewine Fleur van Dishoeck, professor of Molecular Astrophysics at Leiden Observatory and president
Special Colloquium on Building Stars, Planets and The Ingredients for Life in Space with Prof Ewine van Dishoeck
IDIA is pleased to welcome Prof. Ewine F. van Dishoeck from Leiden Observatory (Leiden University) who will be our next speaker for the SEADS Series.
This SEADS seminar was held at the South African Astronomical Observatory because access to the UWC campus was not possible. We are grateful to SAAO
