DID YOU KNOW…
2019 is International Year of the Periodic Table (IYPT). If you want to know all about this visit the official page. But just to give you a quick taste – the periodic system was discovered 150 years ago by a dude called Dmitri Mendeleev. To help celebrate IYPT we are making my book “Sibo Mixes Things Up” a free read for the month of January (just click on the cover in the sidebar). Chemistry is rather cool!
This book was originally sponsored by BASF in 2011 for International Year of Chemistry (IYC). Mrs Rudi Horak – yes, that’s actually the correct spelling of her name, was in charge of Sci-Enza (the science centre at the University of Pretoria) at that stage and she was instrumental in getting funding. This meant the book could be given out to kids freely during that year. Sci-Enza also developed a really awesome puppet show to go with this book that delighted and enlightened many children around South Africa.
