Open day a great success

The Open Day at SANAP headquarters in Cape Town today was an unqualified success, with early figures estimating that more than 600 people including many children took part.  The event, managed by the MTN Sciencentre as part of ‘Antarctica Month’, featured interactive and static displays, science-themed activities for participants through the age spectrum, a live broadcast from Bush Radio, and the very popular tours of the SA Agulhas.  We were also there – virtually – via a video-conferencing setup, allowing the team here at SANAE to answer questions and talk to Open Day participants from all walks of life.  We also had a camera connected to give a live feed of the area outside the base, and a direct weather feed.
