Breaking down barriers that exist between journalists and the science community, the South African Agency for Science and Technology Advancement (SAASTA) organised a two-day training workshop in Pretoria for 51 community media journalists from across the country. The main objective of the workshop was to empower and capacitate community media journalists in science and technology reporting.
An interactive and informative camp was attended by 56 Grade 11 learners and 13 educators from 14 schools in three provinces where Harmony Gold Mining Company has its operations. The camp, held at Holiday Inn Express in Pretoria from 29 September to 2 October, facilitated learning in topics that are perceived to be challenging for most learners.
Numerous Jaguar Primary School Challenge (JPSC) activities are currently under way. The JPSC is an educational programme implemented by SAASTA in collaboration with the Bloodhound Education programme. It challenges primary school learners to build a race car for a “Race Day”.
