Jive Media Africa brought the Hip Hop Science Spaza programme to Taung, North West Province, home of the Taung Child!
The Evolutionary Studies Institute (ESI) is a Centre of Excellence in Palaeosciences, and the global hub for the study of the origins of the species (including human origins). Hip Hop Science Spaza and ESI engaged with learners from 11 schools in Taung to create songs about palaeontology and the rich history of Taung. The study of fossils has broad public appeal, and these songs will be created with the aim of reaching the general public, well beyond typical scientific audiences.
Jive Media Africa is proud to partner with the DST – NRF Centre of Excellence in Palaeosciences, Evolutionary Studies Institute team from Wits – University of the Witwatersrand.
Learners are ready with their performances!

Jive Media Africa designed and implemented a ground-breaking communication campaign for the United Nations Office on Drugs and Crime (UNODC) in association with the National Dept of Social Development (DSD).
The Everyday Heroes Comic Book Campaign highlights the role of communities in supporting victims of crime and violence.
There are six comic books in the series: Sexual Assault, Domestic Violence, Child Sexual Abuse, Human Trafficking, Abuse of Older Persons and Abuse of People with Disabilities.
These comics have been translated into six South Africa languages.
The contract also involved developing a website, animatics, a distribution strategy, as well as carrying out a pilot project and M&E.
Jive Media Africa is excited to be working with SANSA (The South African National Space Agency) to grow Space Science and Engineering in South Africa.
Did you know that we, South Africa, take over communications with NASA’s rockets soon after launch when they come round to our side of the planet? … And did you know that we’ve got eyes in the sky which are constantly feeding us information to help us plan and respond to development issues? … And did you know that we’ll soon be sending a South African to the International Space Station?
Jive Media Africa, in partnership with Proof Communications, developed a communications strategy for SANSA, as well as assisting in the production of newsletters and print products.

Making the universe everyone’s to explore.
We’re bringing the universe closer to ordinary South Africans. Jive Media has produced a 10m long banner with the stunning images from deep space that are usually only available to those with internet access. It has been printed across the country and is hanging in various locations such as the Zoo in Pretoria, Science Centres, etc.
This banner showcases space to the general public. Large, high resolution images of near and deep space will showcase phenomenon such as nebulae, supernovas, globular clusters and galaxies, in all their brilliance. Images of our sun, earth and moon as many have never seen them before, as well as the planets in our solar system, are also showcased.
Jive Media Africa completed a tour around South Africa visiting the prehistory sites that have shaped world knowledge on the evolution of life – and more recently human life – on our planet. These palaeontological and archaeological sites create a wonderful opportunity to share science with the public. They take us back to humankind’s African Origins.
Jive Media Africa produced 3 books about the sites, specifically a learner guide, a tourism guide and portfolio of research activities.
Nonhlanhla Vilakazi, a palaeo-herpitologist (studies fossilized reptiles), came along for the ride and recorded her experiences (in words, images and video clips) on a weblog.
