Education, Activities and Films

The Goethe-Institut Namibia and local partners have once again united for Science Week 2019 that consist of interactive activities for schools and the public screening of films under this year’s theme, Humboldt and the Web of Life. The series of activities and experiments from 14-19 October are facilitated by Imani Scietechnology Investment.

The films of this project’s subcomponent, Science Film Week, were sourced from the Goethe-Institut’s Science Film Festival – an initiative that through short films promotes science education and aims to raise awareness of topics including sustainability, climate change and environmental issues.

This third edition of Science Week in Namibia is unique as the event will for the first time be hosted at a local school in Windhoek - Dr Frans Aupa Indongo Primary School in Katutura. The decision to host this year’s event is particular and was made in the light of bringing information on science to the community.
