Helping science learners in South Africa

- Advertisment -

 

Rosatom Corporate Academy, a wholly owned subsidiary of Russia’s nuclear energy power provider Rosatom, held a Science Olympiad in South Africa late last year. More than 360 learners from nine schools across Gauteng and the Western Cape participated in the Olympiad which was aimed at celebrating and rewarding excellence in the field of science.

A series of award ceremonies and lectures took place at each of the schools the following week. Prof. Alexander Nakhabov of Russia’s National Research Nuclear University (MEPhl), delivered lectures which focused on nuclear education in Russia and the specificities and safety aspects of Russian nuclear technologies.

Rosatom plays an active role in the development of the educational system in South Africa by granting student scholarships, holding competitions with trips to Russia as main prizes and gives local universities the equipment needed to conduct laboratory tests. Each year the Russian Federation offers ten scholarships to South African students to study a nuclear career of their choice at one of its world renowned universities in Russia.

Earlier this year the company partnered with the South African Young Nuclear Professional Society to refurbish and equip the science laboratory at Bothabelo High School. The company invested more than R100 000 to provide the no-fees school with critical laboratory and basic school equipment such as chairs, desks and stationary.

Students interested in applying for scholarships to study in Russia can do so by contacting the local Rosatom office on info@rosatom.co.za.
