Coming of age

Phases of life are marked and celebrated in many ways by people, and perhaps none more than the attainment of adult status. In plants and animals, an adult stage can also be recognised. Getting to that stage in many creatures involves many changes to the individual. The concept of maturity can also be applied to society and the inanimate world.

What is the Yebo Gogga exhibition?

It is a free interactive science exhibition with a strong emphasis on biology. Learners get to learn more about the natural world and sustainable living. They can also find out more about the University from the student volunteers and staff at the exhibition. The theme this year is ‘Coming of Age’. All living things go through various life stages. Often great changes take place before reaching the adult stage. It is an important phase for the continuation of the species, and for many organisms, is a large proportion of their lifespan. The concept of ‘Coming of Age’ can also apply to organisations and the state of knowledge.
