Open your own Science Spaza, because "Knowledge is Ncah"!
South African learners who will become the scientists and engineers of the future, are ranking very low in recent studies on mathematics and science competency*. The lack of resources and the lack of opportunity for experiential learning are, in part, responsible for this state of affairs.
The Hydrogen South Africa Public Awareness and Demonstration Platform (HySA PADP) and the Nanotechnology Public Engagement Programme (NPEP) - in partnership with Jive Media Africa - bring you Science Spaza**, an exciting, fun and interactive science learning experience bringing curriculum-linked science resources to schools around South Africa through science clubs.
Network of science clubs
The objective of Science Spaza is to improve science literacy in schools and to support educators to teach science in a fun and effective manner. Science Spaza aims to establish a network of science clubs in disadvantaged schools across the country, supported with appropriate resources and tools.
Science Spaza also provides resources and tools to support your science club or to set up a new science club in your own school or community. Science clubs can register on the Science Spaza website to receive updates and additional resources - and the chance to participate in competitions and other initiatives.
In addition, Science Spaza arranges events from time to time. These include talks, shows and other engaging activities such as meeting science role models. Science Spaza creates opportunities for learners and educators, taking science in South Africa to new heights - because "Knowledge is Ncah!"
