The 23rd edition of South Africa's National Science Festival, Scifest Africa, will be taking place from 6-12 March 2019 in Makhanda (Grahamstown), Eastern Cape.
Our theme 'Discover Your Element' celebrates the International Year of the Periodic Table of Chemical Elements as proclaimed by the United Nations. The theme also celebrates several anniversaries in the history of Chemistry, including the 150th anniversary of the table's creation by Dmitry Mendeleev in 1869, 350 years since the discovery of phosphorous, the categorisation of 33 elements in 1789 by Lavoisier's and Dobereiner's law of the triads in 1829.
