ROCK-ET SCIENCE CLUB: The awesome learners from Rock-et Science Club at Borakanelo High School with their Spaza Space. This is what they have to say: “The Spaza Space newspapers brought the universe closer to our classrooms. Learners were able to see and learn more about visible planets and stars. The Space edition gave learners more information about astronomy in our country and careers. This encouraged them to study hard and smart.”

Northriding High School's National Science Week 2018 participation!

Well done to our NRHS Science Club! Their participation in National Science Week 2018 was outstanding. The club hosted a "fun fair" for the duration of National Science Week and some of their activities included poem reading, science experiments, speeches from guest speakers and a talk about recycling. WOW! Here are a few words from one of the students:

"My name is Philothea Fundisi a grade 10 pupil at NRHS. On the 31st of July 2018 we as NRHS science club split up into committees and hosted a power-packed National Science Week Fest. Can I just say WOW it was AMAzing. From the colourful decor, delectable finger foods, mesmerizing experiments, a fun science quiz, to our two MCs who were so eloquent in speech,and our spot on NSW tees as gear and a media crew to capture all the beautiful moments. A poem by Amanda Phakati and speech by yours truly soothed the hearts of the floor at large. The presence of our guest speaker Doctor Oosthuizen graced our event together with a lecture. We really understand science from a much more fun perspective. Kudos to NRHS science club for hosting a Grand Fest.

SCIENCE IS LIT✨"

THE OZONE CLUB TAKES ON HIP HOP HEALTH

Research on whether there is any E.coli Bacteria in our local water-in Rensburg (Esigodlweni) By Ozone Club-Riverdale Primary School in Escourt 30 August 2016.

"We had a good experience when we were out for a field trip doing our project. All learners participated honestly. Leaners voted for who will fill water in the containers, because they all wanted to fill it. It was really a hands-on project.

When we did this field trip activity, we all learnt to appreciate and respect nature because when we went out of the school to the river, we saw nice flat rocks and a steep valley. Before we could even talk about water, the learners realised that the stream was dirty and needed to be cleaned up. It was our first time to be engaged in such a project. We were so enthusiastic in a way that we wish we could have more projects.

When we reached the river and stream, we firstly washed our hands with soap and water as well as the outside of the containers. We then poured river water into the containers. We placed written stickers on top of the lids for identification purposes. Finally, we took some pictures as a proof of every step we undergone. This was really an exciting project!

When we got to school we filled tap and tank water into different containers still checking for E.coli bacteria"
