An exciting event is looming on the horizon. If you are fascinated by experiments, explotions or explorations, do not miss out on this year’s Tritech Science and Technology Fair. This event will be hosted by Merensky High School on 16 September.
With buzzwords like “brain drain” and “human capital flight”, the youth are eager to show that they are eager to make a difference to all this scepticism.
The Tritech Science and Technology Fair is a platform for participating learners to increase their awareness of the wonders of science, add to their knowledge, broaden their scientific horizons and demonstrate their talents.
Founded in 2009 and based in Tzaneen, South Africa, Tritech is an exciting inter-provincial science competition open to all grade 7 to 12 learners. Learners from all over Limpopo and Mpumalanga will participate. The aim of this competition is to encourage learners to become scientists and ultimately address the skills shortage in our country and the world.
Eager beavers need to identify a problem in a specific field and find solutions using available technology, think critically, collect data and analyze information. They then communicate findings to fellow students, teachers and other knowledgeable people.
More than 200 learners will present their scientific findings on research in 6 different categories. The public is welcome to view the projects on 16 September between 16:30 and 17:30 at Merensky High School.
An exciting fun-filled programme awaits the participants on the Friday evening and Saturday morning. A prize giving ceremony is scheduled for Saturday afternoon at 14:30 in Merensky‘s school hall.
