What is the African contribution to science and inventions past, present and future?
The Science Museums' Dana Centre.
Thursday 22nd September 2011
Time 6:30pm to 9pm
Most lay persons, even scientists and historians know very little of the contributions Africans have made in the scientific and inventive arenas. Most scientific books mention nothing or very little at best about the African effort in this area.
Come along and hear the speakers at this event explode the myth that Africa and Africans contributed no real value to human development.
Leading scientists, engineers, inventors and African scientists and inventors historian aim to show via presentation, debate and audio visual demonstrations in detail the African contribution pre transatlantic slave trade and colonization of Africa, during slavery, the present contributions by Africans and Africa's role in the 21st Century.
Book early as the last presentation Michael Williams gave at the Dana centre was over subscribed and we intend to make this one even better.

BIS Publishing Courses
BIS Publications is a leading UK based publishing house with over 16 years in the publishing, distribution and retail book industry. We are publishers of African / African Caribbean fiction and non-fiction books.
We came into existence after our research found that although there was vital need for African books and resources, it was not being fully catered for, which meant resources highlighting the African experience could not be found in homes, schools and libraries.
With this in mind, BIS Publications sort to fill this very important gap. BIS Publications books promote cultural education amongst all communities, knowledge, inspiration, aspiration and information resulting in producing children and adults with high self esteem, high self worth, pride in their heritage and most of all confidence.
