We hear of Albert Einstein, Marie Curie and others and wonder who their Ghanaian contemporaries might have been. Is Ghana a scientific or technology desert, so as to speak? Who are those scientists that we can point to? In the Evolution of Science exhibition, opening on the 9th December, 2019 at the
Museum of Science and Technology, Accra, we centre the works of some Ghanaian researchers through the interpretations and/or applications by a select group of Ghanaian artists.
Commenting on the exhibition, Mr. Robert Tagoe the Projects director of Ghscientific, a STEM not-for-profit and the organisers of the exhibition said ‘One of the challenges scientists and researchers have faced over the years is how to communicate their research to the general public. It is our hope that in using the medium of art, we can pave a way for science communicators to explore how to engage the general public’.
The exhibition will be curated by Writer Kwabena Agyare Yeboah. It will run from 9th, December, 2019 to 20th, December, 2019 at the Museum of Science and Technology, Accra.
An exciting programme of events including panel discussion, art and science activity workshops, art and science talks will accompany the main exhibition.
