STEM fanatics!

July 2016 was another superb month for the P-STEM Foundation let’s fill you in:

We kicked off the month with a Mandela Day groundwork session on the 2nd of July, led by our volunteer Electrical Engineers. With their help, we put together a Diabetes workshop that combined teaching on Diabetes with introducing bio-medical engineering concepts. This was effectively achieved by the learners and Accenture volunteers on Mandela Day, with a total of 34 learners present. The primary school learners built an informative chart that shows us the sugar/glucose levels in food that we consume every day, while our high school students went on to create an artificial pancreas system model, with the guidance of our esteemed volunteers.

It doesn’t end there. We also trained 13 facilitators for a distinct after schools program in Alexandra township. In partnership with Rays of Hope and City Hill Church on the 2nd of July. This program will target 60 learners from child-headed households who are struggling with Maths and Science. The Program will officially launch on Tuesday 26 July.
