STEM education specialist, Sakhikamva Foundation has announced the launch of an action-packed, virtual science event that is free to attend and running from 21 August through to 4 September which will connect South African children, teachers and parents to the global science community.  

Joined by U.S-based Ronnie Thomas from Fun Weird Science, SA’s Steve Sherman from Living Maths and Australian Dr Graham Walker, the Sakhikamva Science Festival programme aims to engage kids in science, technology, engineering and maths through fun ways of learning. 

On 21 August, the festival welcomes children of all ages, and their families, with an opening event by veteran NASA astronaut, Nicole Stott who will be livestreamed from Florida U.S.A.

Attendance for this once-in-a-lifetime close encounter with a space traveller can be booked by visiting the Sakhikamva Foundation website. 

Thanks to a sponsorship from Tata Consultancy Services (TCS), participating in the Sakhikamva Foundation Science Festival is free for all, and there are various strategies in place to help schools, parents and teachers with data issues to still access the virtual festival programme.

TCS, a global IT services provider, is a long-standing supporter of STEM education and the Sakhikamva Foundation.

There’s no doubt that education in SA needs a boost of positivity, and the Sakhikamva Foundation 2020 Science Festival highlights the joy of discovery, of following your curiosity and unlocking the mysteries of our world through Science and Maths.
