The theme for the Nelson Mandela Bay Science & Technology Centre’s upcoming holiday programme is “Every Drop Counts!”

According to Nomawethu Kama from the science centre, the purpose of the holiday programme is to instil the right attitude in learners towards water saving through scientific applications.

“The learners will be taught about the importance of water as one of our natural resources. There will also be an hour long maths session every day,” said Kama.

The holiday programme will be from 2 - 6 October, 10:00 - 14:00 and children aged 6 -14 years are invited to attend. The cost is only R10 per child and a limited number can be accommodated therefore booking is essential. Please note that no cash payments are accepted, parents should contact the centre for banking details.

The Nelson Mandela Bay Science & Technology Centre is situated at the corner of Lower Drostdy Street & Algoa Road.

Water is scarce in many parts of the world, including South Africa.

According to the World Wildlife Fund (WWF), a third of the world’s population faces water shortages. And by 2025 two-thirds of us could be in serious trouble.

Despite 70% of the earth being covered in water, says the WWF, less than 1% of that is fresh and accessible.

And since water is crucial for life, it’s a human right to have access to water. So where will that leave us?
