Speak2aScientist is a public science communication programme that aims to increase the accessibility of science and scientific research (in particular South African Research) to the general public. By providing a platform for interested public (age 15yrs up) to meet with a leading scientist, the programme aspires to provide an open and informal space for the general public to engage in scientific discussions and debate.

The Nanotechnology series of talks (see below) are funded through the Public Engagement with Nanotechnology programme administered by SAASTA on behalf of the Department of Science and Technology (DST).
