On Saturday 24 May an estimated 25 000 prospective students and their parents, friends and relatives flooded the UP campus to explore all possible areas of study and career opportunities. This year the exhibitions of departments in the Faculty of Natural and Agricultural Sciences took place in the Rautenbach Hall. FABI staff and students, who belong to seven different academic departments, enthusiastically took part in the exhibits. It was wonderful to see how even our honours students got all excited when they started explaining to learners what fields like microbiology and genetics entails. We thank all FABIans who participated to make the day a success and hopefully stirred the interest of some good future FABI students!
