Our Engineering Science programme has become popular …. rocketry and robotics are two of the very popular hobbies and favourite pastimes.

 

There are however many young scientists who would like to follow a career in engineering ...

 

We are working closely with international role-players and stakeholders to establish formal rocketry and robotics programmes for South Africa and Africa.

 

Our Rockets and Robots Programme has been designed to create and nurture interest in engineering science at school, from grade 1 to grade 13 level.

 

Rocketry and robotics are two different disciplines, and each has an independent programme.

 

 

The Science of Rockets and Robots [R&R]: The Gateway Approach

 

The objectives of the program are to

1.     Stimulate students’ interest in Gateway subjects, thus accumulatively

§   creating a positive disposition towards learning

§   assisting students and school teachers [mentors/coaches] to develop (i) personal ability/skills and (ii) professional skills

§    guiding students towards their respective career portals

2.     Offer the opportunity to students to participate in Science Based Competition on international basis
