DR G SHOW
On the 18 July 2019, Dr M. Govender, a senior lecturer and researcher at the Durban University of Technology, conducted the Dr G road show at Sastri College - SACC. He conducted jaw dropping experiments with transparent explanations and rib-tickling humour. The learners enjoyed the building of the Spaghetti Bridge, demonstration of the Hovercraft and Rocket Launch among other demonstrations. He gave learners a great motivational talk.
According to Kier Fataar, a grade 8 learner, the beginning of the show was brilliant, the rocket that Dr. G launched was really fun. It was amazing how the mixture of the ethanol and methanol gave the bottle so much power that it flew to the first floor. His words inspired me: to never give up and to think out of the box to solve problems. He explained everything clearly and made Physics seem much more fun.
He mentioned that nowadays people are too busy on their phones to be outside and to try new things. He told us that as you get older some people lose their imagination. When you are still young you can imagine anything and make the most impossible task, possible. Before the show could end Dr. G launched two water powered rockets.
