The Suzuki 947 Crew are out on the streets of Joburg once again for this week's reveal of our latest #947JoburgGem. They found themselves at the largest science centre in Southern Africa - Sci-bono Discovery Centre. It is a non-Profit Company set up by the Department of Education and local donors to assist in the delivery of mathematics, science and technology in the province.
Sci-Bono has a collection of over 350 interactive science and technology exhibits which offers visitors opportunities to engage with science and technology. These include the mining exhibition, laboratories, the planetarium, as well as the National Geographic exhibition to mention but a few.
What stood out the most to the Suzuki #947Crew was the “Chair of Nails” which consisted of several sharp nails. The instruction were as follows:
- Stand in front of the chair
- 2. Lift up the clear chair lid
- Turn around keeping the chair lid up
- Place hands on the arms of the chair and
- Carefully lower yourself into the chair
Noni was brave enough to try it and even though she expected some sharp pains in her rear, she felt absolutely nothing. If you think about it, each time you increase the number of nails, you spread your weight over more nails and decrease the force that each nails applies to your rear. This is something you definitely have to try out when you visit Sci-Bono.
