2009-12-17

Mr Hannes Pieterse from the Division: Strategic Communications at the University of the Free State (UFS) was recently announced as a category winner in the SA Science Lens competition of the South African Agency for Science and Technology Advancement (SAASTA).

The category that Mr Pieterse has won – the Special Award for Science Promotion – is a new addition to the competition.

One of Mr Pieterse’s hobbies is photography. He took the photograph at a science exhibition expo of the Astronomy Society of Bloemfontein last year. The photo titled Eish, the tension! is of a young girl busy with a physics experiment. With this experiment she shows how surface tension works in soapy water.
