Students and staff from the UWC Astro Group attended the South African Radio Astronomical Observatory (SARAO) Postgraduate Bursary conference in Durban from the 2nd – 6th December. The conference is held for those funded by the SARAO in order to showcase their work as well as to network with the South African radio astronomy community.

The week-long conference comprised of talks and a poster session for all to see. The topics varied from the science that SARAO can do with MeerKAT to the engineering aspect and issues facing MeerKAT.
