Olympiads and Competitions 2021- Life Sciences

28 September 2021

The National Science Olympiad is one of NRF-SAASTA’s flagship projects. Since 2005, the now 56-year-old project has offered learners in grades 10-12 an exciting opportunity to compete in science with fellow learners from SADC countries such as Lesotho, Zimbabwe and Namibia.

Traditionally, during the June/July vacation a group of 100 learners, who excel or demonstrate potential in the Olympiad examination, is invited to participate in a Science Focus Week consisting of stimulating lectures, excursions, industry visits and other fun events. However, due to Covid-19, there will be no Focus Week and no award giving ceremony during 2021.
