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.
Curro Academy Parkdene is hosting an open day and cultural market on Saturday, 14 September 2019 from 09:00 to 12:00. Current and prospective parents who enrol (or re-enrol) their child/ren on this fun-filled day will enter a lucky draw and stand a chance to win a bursary!
For more information, please get in touch with the school.
