Glenwood recently participated in the Eskom Expo for Young Scientists, regional division.
Eskom Expo for Young Scientists is an exposition, or science fair, where students have a chance to show others their projects about their own scientific investigations.
At Expo, students can discuss their work with judges, teachers and students from other schools, with parents and with other interested people.
By participating at expo students will increase their awareness of the wonders of science, add to their knowledge and broaden their scientific horizons.
Eskom’s Mission is to develop young scientists who are able to identify a problem, analyse information, find solutions and communicate findings effectively.
Learners can only participate in Eskom Expo for Young Scientists via their school.
