Sci-Bono in Johannesburg is an amazing standing exhibition of maths, science and technology, which also takes travelling exhibitions all over South Africa! If you haven't been - take the whole school! All ages - preschool to senior High School

The Cape Town Science Centre - a smaller version of Sci-Bono, in Cape Town

Currently the best education think tank in SA - the Centre for Education Policy Development

RADMASTE, the Maths, Science and Technology think-tank at Wits; courses, texts and more

The Times Educational Supplement (TES) is an amazing teacher resource
