GARDEN ROUTE NEWS - The Eden Karoo Expo for Young Scientists team jump-started the year by hosting an educators' workshop at Inkcubeko Youth Centre on 31 January and 1 February.
It was presented in conjunction with the D-school division at UCT and gave valuable insight into a new creative way of tackling all thinking processes.
The aim is to enable learners to use a better thinking process when doing research for projects.
Educators had to build small projects within a limited time frame, and discuss their projects with the other groups. The question "why" brought about new meaning and understanding.
During February and April, several workshops 1 and 2 will be held across the region to assist both learners and educators, using the same thinking methods.
These workshops assist learners through the process, from finding a topic selected from 13 expo categories, to reaching the standard required at the regional competition in August.
Please contact Sonet (Eden admin) via firstname.lastname@example.org should you require further information on the planned events or if you can assist in any way with regard to gifts, prizes and judging.
