Robert Inglis, Director of Jive Media Africa, presented the Hip Hop Health project to a packed session at the Public Communication of Science and Technology (PCST) 2016 conference. Very positive feedback was received from science communication academics and practitioners alike from as far afield as Mexico, Vietnam, Spain and Australia, with participants calling it “significant” and “beautiful”, among others. The Hip Hop Health communication products are available for free download on the Science Spaza Website. See www.sciencespaza.org

The Agent Zee Project was represented through a poster, which was initially selected as one of 10 to be presented at a session during the conference. At the closing plenary it was selected along with two others as a top conference poster. The poster explored this issue of lack of female representation in science leadership and explored the use of social media in responding to this through the profiling of women scientist role-models. The Agent Zee programme has been awarded free registration at the next PCST conference in New Zealand in 2018. The poster can be seen at www.agentzee.org

AgentZee1As the world becomes ever more inter-connected, Social Media creates exciting opportunities to reach audiences in new ways. Jive Media Africa is proud to present Agent Zee, a student in science who’s far from ordinary.

Agent Zee knows her true potential as an African woman and uses a range of social media platforms to engage fellow students with information, insights and inspiration with which to navigate the world of science and technology in Africa.


Internationally and in South Africa, women remain under-represented in the sciences. Addressing this, and the many challenges faced by African women in science, is crucial to bring science and society closer together. Agent Zee talks to young scientists exposing them to opportunities, information and role models – inspiration for the next generation of African science leaders.

Agent Zee sends out a weekly newsletter to over 750 tertiary students countrywide.
