A career in Nuclear Science: A chat with Senamile Masango

Solution Space Learning Lunches provide a space for entrepreneurs, youth and communities to learn from experts in their field. We invite guests to speak on a range of topics that address issues.

In commemoration of Youth Month, we are celebrating the first African woman in Nuclear Science. We have therefore invited Nuclear Scientist, Senamile Masango, one of South Africa's successful black woman scientist under 35 years.

The chat will about:

  • The different career paths within the Science field.
  • How we can apply science into our daily lives.
  • The importance of science in a South African and global context.
  • How we can use science to tackle real community problems.
