POSTGRADUATE ELECTRICAL engineering students on the Introduction to Space Technology course recently launched a two-stage rocket with several instrument payloads at the Overberg Test Range, Arniston, a fitting tribute to the 50th anniversary of the Space Age this year.

FOUR STUDENTS in the Department of Botany - Julia Wakeling, Diane Southey, Ryan Blanchard and Heidi Hawkins - scooped accolades at two different congresses. Southey and Hawkins were named as the best student and winner of the best talk, respectively, at the Fynbos Forum held in Langebaan, where Blanchard won an award for the best poster. Wakeling was voted the best student at the congress of the Grasslands Society of Southern Africa in Grahamstown in July.

THE UCT BIOETHICS Centre held a reunion for students who participated in its International Research Ethics in Southern Africa (IRENSA) diploma programme from 2003 to 2006 on 14 August. These days, graduates from the programme serve on 20 research ethics committees in South Africa and on a further nine committees in eight other African countries.
