In today’s society, many students are blinded by the idea that Science is for boring old men but, in fact, anyone can begin a career in this exciting field! Nolwazi Nombona is a Masters student at Rhodes University currently researching deep into the world of electrochemistry. With passion, Nolwazi explains how Science is everywhere and in everything and with that, encourages everyone to become involved in the Science world.
For us, as Journalism students who had to complete this assignment, we not only learnt the basics of shooting for TV but also the values of a degree in Science. Once you enter your faculty at university you often block off the others around you but this task opened our minds to what is out there.
Take a watch, learn a thing or two and let us know what you think.
