As the curtains closed on the National Science Week, Friday, August 4th marked an exceptional conclusion to a week dedicated to innovation and the celebration of science. The event culminated in a remarkable visit to the CSIR center in Pretoria, where a group of bright minds from our Grade 11 learners, who had previously participated in the April competition, joined forces with Grade 10 Science enthusiasts for an unforgettable experience.
With the guidance of Mr. Asumani, Dube Phumzile, Ipeleng Mashilo, and Nkuna Ntsako, the talented Grade 11 learners who had participated in the earlier competition, led the charge. Accompanied by the eager Grade 10 learners Kale Sharron Ledile, Motopi Lehlogonolo, and Jackson Jr. Matabola, the group ventured back to the CSIR center for an engaging day of interaction and inspiration. The learners were privileged to interact with esteemed professors and accomplished doctors in the field, gaining invaluable insights into the world of science and its myriad applications.
This year's National Science Week, taking place from July 31st to August 5th, 2023, has been an extraordinary event in the world of Science, Technology, Engineering, Mathematics, and Innovation (STEMI). Among the various celebrations, one standout occasion was hosted by Moipone Academy at the Rabasotho Community Hall. This event aimed to stimulate interest in STEMI careers for young minds and provide them with opportunities to interact with role models and subject experts.
On Monday, July 31st, 2023, the Rabasotho Community Hall came alive with 30 bright Grade 10 and Grade 11 learners from Moipone Academy, who were specially invited to participate in the festivities. The event started promptly at 8:00 am and concluded at 12:00 pm, providing an action-packed morning filled with inspiration, education, and fun.
The purpose of this event was to ignite a passion for STEMI fields among the young learners, encouraging them to explore various career paths that lie ahead. In today's ever-evolving world, the demand for professionals in these areas has never been greater, and National Science Week serves as the perfect platform to showcase the wonders of science and its practical applications.
Throughout the morning, the learners were exposed to a wide array of engaging activities, demonstrations, and talks led by distinguished individuals and subject experts in STEMI. From fascinating experiments to mind-boggling innovations, the event served as an eye-opener for the students, showcasing the real-world applications of their science education.
Thank you, Moipone Academy, Ekurhuleni North District – Department Of Basic Education, and all the organizers and contributors for making this year's National Science Week a resounding success. Your efforts have sown the seeds of inspiration in the hearts and minds of these young learners, shaping the future of STEMI in our great nation.
Let us all look forward to the bright future that awaits, where the pursuit of knowledge and the spirit of innovation will continue to lead us towards progress and prosperity.
Happy National Science Week 2023!
