A programme on the Public Understanding of Biotechnology (PUB) has been launched by the South African Agency for Science and Technology Advancement (SAASTA) in early 2003. The overall aim of the PUB programme is to promote a clear understanding of the potential of biotechnology and to ensure broad public awareness, dialogue and debate on its current and potential future applications. At the UNIZUL Science Centre (USC) we offer shows and workshops dealing with DNA, cloning, HIV/AIDS, biodiversity and have some shows in the developmental stages as well.
