​The Square Kilometre Array (SKA), poised to be the world’s largest radio telescope and 50 times more sensitive than any other radio instrument, will be explored as part of a diverse enrichment programme on offer at the first Winter School to be hosted by the University of Johannesburg (UJ) from 6-10 July 2015.

UJ’s Winter School, geared towards high school learners (and their parents), students and the general public, focuses on a range of interesting, informative and thought-provoking presentations and workshops.

Talks and short lectures have been selected in more than 50 topics that include the Academy for Computer Science and Software Engineering offering for Grade 12 learners with the programming component, a robotics workshop that focusses on controlling a robot using output commands and presentations on Africa’s mission to the moon, with participants meeting XCOR astronaut Mandla Maseko. Information on what it takes to become an attorney; resources for and challenges facing students making the transition from school to university; how to improve your chances of finding a job with enhanced CV and cover letter writing skills are some of the programmes on offer. Want to see what your DNA looks like? See your genes develop before your eyes or gain other insights into the chemistry that makes up the world as part of the enrichment week.
