The Science Postgraduate Students Association hosted its fourth annual Science Symposium to stimulate interest among young scientists and spark collaborations and networks, within the faculty and with potential employers. Over a day of oral and poster presentations, the postgrads represented their work to a mixed audience, including representatives from sponsors Lasec, Inqaba Biotech, Unilever and Advanced Laboratory Solutions.

The day ended with a prize-giving ceremony. In the poster presentation category, Simon Broadley from the Electron Microscope Unit walked away with first prize, Sam Jack from the Department of Botany came second, and Deanne de Bude from the Department of Astronomy was in third place. The oral presentation category was won by Alistair Potts from the Department of Botany, Philip Southey from the Department of Physics was named runner-up, and Marietjie Kotze, also from Botany, came third.
