Brain waves development is excited to host the second annual Loxion science fair and expo. Our first event saw us host an overwhelming number of learners to a total of 3800 in Mamelodi, which was unheard of. It is for this reason that we are ready to host another one for the benefit of the learners in our community. The science fair is designed to encourage township learners to take part in the exciting world of science and technology, exposing them to experiences they are unlikely to see or witness in school.
The science fair will give learners an opportunity to present their science projects and to compete on an even platform, as it is only open to township schools, where learners have limited resources that prevent them from participating in other regional science expos. It will encourage them to show case their demonstrations without feeling intimidated or side lined by learners from well privileged schools, where they have access to all the resources needed to execute a well-structured and advanced science project.
Our mission is to promote an interest in science and develop a generation of individuals who will not only function in society, but thrive.
Just like with most fairs and expos, the aim is to encourage learners to participate in science, technology, mathematics and innovation activities. Our mission is to develop young black scientists who are able to identify a problem, analyse data, find solutions and be able to communicate their findings effectively. To engage the public in a celebration of our local science community, and the way science, technology, engineering, mathematics and Innovation (STEMI) help us to better understand our and improve our world
