UKZN’s College of Agriculture, Engineering and Science (CAES) stand at the annual Royal Agricultural Show in Pietermaritzburg was awarded a Silver Medallion for 2019. The UKZN stand included displays from a range of academic disciplines in the College as well as a variety of plants, mammals, reptiles and insects from the University’s agricultural, botanical, zoological and entomological disciplines. In particular, the display highlighted research done by postgraduate students in the School of Life Sciences. A star attraction at the stand was ‘Twinkie’, a male Dumeril’s boa, from Madagascar. Also of interest were exhibits from UKZN’s Frank Bush Zoological Museum collection, some of which are more than 100 years old. With STEC@UKZN'’s ‘Dr T’ wowing both young and old with her magical science show, there was always a fascinated crowd on hand to learn more about what UKZN has to offer. The College of Agriculture, Engineering and Science has exhibited at the show for several years, consistently winning prizes for its displays. The Royal Show, which has been held for over 160 years, is the premier agricultural and lifestyle event in KwaZulu-Natal, attracting more than 180 000 people during its 10-day run.
