GEORGE NEWS - The PetroSA Science and Invention Expo, hosted by the Eden Lions Club, will be held at the Outeniqua Transport Museum in George from 1-3 August giving students the opportunity to submit an entry, be it privately or as part of a school group.
Any science fair project is a unique way for students to find answers to questions and satisfy their own curiosity about the world around them.
These projects include an experiment, a demonstration, a research effort, a collection of scientific items or a display of scientific apparatus presented for viewing to interested parties.
"Science and mathematics have been in the spotlight recently as education officials realise that this is an area which needs much improvement at school level. Science fairs give students the opportunity to explore their own curiosity and the platform to proudly display their findings," said Carl van Blerk, Eden Lions Club.
Primary and high school science teachers are encouraged to submit any and all discovery-based projects that their students have done as part of the Caps Curriculum, or to simply put projects and models on display built during the school term thus far.
