What is the Eskom Expo for Young Scientists?

The Eskom Expo for Young Scientists is a national competition that aims to inspire and develop young scientists who are able to identify a problem, analyse information, find solutions and communicate findings effectively.

Learners are required to enter a research project into one of 32 regional finals held between July and September every year, and will then be selected for participation at the national final in Johannesburg in early October.

The 2016 Eskom Expo for Young Scientists Grahamstown Regional Final is coordinated by Scifest Africa and is scheduled for Saturday, 30 July. Please feel free to contact our offices on 046 603 1106 or email scifest.outreach[at]gmail.com for more information
