27 September 2019

Megan Furter, a learner at St Dominics Newcastle, has received a great prize for the Robotics project she presented at the recent Eskom Expo for Young Scientists: a bursary from Eskom to the value of R400 000 at the university of her choice.

St Dominics Newcastle – one of Curro’s Select Schools – offers Robotics as an assessment-free subject, as part of Curro’s country-wide STEAM(D) focus. Through this focus, Curro schools have reached great achievements at Science and Robotics competitions. Most recently, 18 of the 64 provincial teams that qualified for the upcoming National World Robot Olympiad are from Curro schools.
