(SKA) telescope remain strong and the countries are developing a new African
network of telescopes.

Bursaries will be provided again in 2013 by the Department of Trade and Industry with innovation being acknowledged as driving economic development with science and technology contributing to this. SA was called upon to produce more innovators who could build sustainable businesses for the future.

The Air Traffic and Navigation Services (ATNS) has offered a once-in-a-life-time opportunity to 24 young female matriculants to undergo specialised aviation training to become Air Traffic Controllers (ATCOs).

Science and Technology Minister Naledi Pandor says the country needs more black
female research students in the science and technology field from the new generation
of students.

The South African biotechnology industry and life science researchers are expected
to benefit from a National Bioinformatics Service Platform (BSP) established by the
Department of Science and Technology.

The 2014 Sasol Solar Challenge is upon us. Amid much excitement, Ms Naledi Pandor,
Minister of Science and Technology, got the challenge underway at the Council for
Scientific and Industrial Research (CSIR).

For centuries, man has studied the stars, planets and space in our search to
understand what is in the skies above us. Astronomy is a science that offers many
career opportunities for those fascinated by the vastness and magic of the universe.

Thousands of students have been enthralled by the fascinating world of mathematics,
science and technology at this year?s Sasol Techno X. Grade 9 - 12 students were
entertained with mild explosions, chemical reactions and cool experiments.

The Department of Science and Technology Deputy Director-General, Dr Wendy
Ngoma, has encouraged learners to study maths and science to help the country
respond to the challenges of economic growth and fighting poverty.

Science and Technology Minister Naledi Pandor says government has set a target of
producing 100 000 Doctor of Philosophy (PhD) graduates by 2030 to improve research
and innovation capacity.

Sasol?s flagship career expo, Techno X is one of the largest career guidance
exhibitions of its kind in the country. It attracts over 24 000 visitors from seven
provinces every year - with grade 7 to 12 learners coming from more than 300
schools.

Science and Technology Deputy Minister Zanele kaMagwaza-Msibi says her
department will invest more in research and innovation to ensure that the
country produces more scientists and engineers.

The City of Tshwane and the Innovation Hub have partnered to launch
initiatives which will bring science, technology, engineering and mathematics
closer to the youth, especially those from previously disadvantaged
backgrounds.

The Department of Science and Technology will intensify its efforts to produce
more scientists by giving 700 young and unemployed graduates relevant work
experience in science, engineering and technology institutions.

The Department of Science and Technology welcomed the return of Minister
Naledi Pandor to the fold, after she was re-appointed as the department?s
new minister.

The top winners for the world?s largest high school science research
competition, the Intel International Science and Engineering Fair (ISEF), have
been announced in Los Angeles.

With the 2013 matric pass rate in mathematics and physical science showing a
slight increase compared to 2012, Deputy Minister of Science and Technology,
Michael Masutha is encouraging learners and teachers to work even harder in
improving on these subjects.

Learners are being encouraged to explore the different careers in science,
technology, maths and innovation, while also developing problem-solving skills
for their schools, homes and communities.

Innovation in science has been urged by Science and Technology Minister Derek Hanekom to address real socio-economic challenges. Science could also contribute to increasing development and innovation capacity for the country.

The Department of Science and Technology and Microsoft South Africa have signed a Memorandum of Understanding to fast-track high-performance computing, human capital and enterprise development. The memorandum is expected to bring foreign direct investment in research and development, and to harness existing Information and Communication Technology (ICT) skills programmes to support knowledge-generating capacity.


Africa will be hosting the 62nd International Astronautical Congress (IAC 2011) in Cape Town. The congress, which will run concurrently with a large exhibition, is expected to draw over 3500 conference participants and exhibitors.


Eight countries have joined forces with South Africa by signing a letter of intent to see the Square Kilometre Array (SKA) built. Science and Technology Minister Naledi Pandor welcomed the agreement, which committed the countries to securing funding for the next phase of the project - at about R14.4 million Rand - which could start as early as 2016. The design, construction and operation of the telescope has the potential to impact on skills development in science, engineering and in associated industries, not only in the host countries but in all project partner countries.


Commemorative stamps recognising South Africa's Sumbandila Satellite, launched in Russia in 2009 are now available. The satellite carries a high-resolution camera that produces images for use in monitoring agriculture, mapping infrastructure and land use, tracking population movement, and measuring the water levels of dams.


Addressing the National Press Club in Pretoria, Science and Technology Minister Naledi Pandor has confirmed that South Africa is well on track to hosting the world?s largest telescope - the Square Kilometer Array (SKA). Winning the bid would not only benefit South Africa economically, but would enable South Africa to attract the world?s best scientists.

South Africa must get better at acquiring green knowledge and technology transfer ? or be left out of global markets, says Radhika Perrot. Technology transfer has a fair mention in the Kyoto Protocol, with the Clean Development Mechanism (CDM) the main market instrument designed to transfer technology from Northern to Southern countries.
