Pupils: Science symposium

2008-07-24 00:00

The kwaXimba Sports Complex near Cato Ridge will host the Mathematics, Science & Technology symposium on Tuesday and Wednesday.

eThekwini deputy city manager for procurement & infrastructure Derek Naidoo said: “These symposia are important because we have a serious shortage of skills in the whole country, particularly in the cluster that I head”.

The initiative aims to increase the number of pupils studying maths and science at a higher grade throughout the eThekwini region.

Schools in the area have been invited to see demonstrations by companies that work with science and maths.

Over 300 rural schools and more than 12 000 pupils will take part in the two-day event. For more details contact Gugu Blose at 031 311 2279 or Ronell Mitchell at 031 311 7275.
