We will be holding the FFS Expo for Young Scientists at the Sports Centre of the University of KwaZulu-Natal, Westville Campus, Durban on 28 and 29 July 2011. All high school learners are encouraged to enter their science projects in the exhibition. This year particular emphasis will be placed on Chemistry projects for which special prizes will be awarded.

All learners participating in the event will be awarded a certificate of participation and stand the chance to win medals, monetary and other prizes. Those judged to have exhibited the best projects will also be invited to participate in a 3-day Science Tour in September.
