The Eskom Expo for Young Scientists International Science Fair (ISF) has won the 2018 South African National Energy Association (SANEA) Energy Education Award.

Through these awards, SANEA and the South African National Energy Development Institute (SANEDI) aim to celebrate and pay tribute to enthusiastic South Africans and organisations that are key role players in the energy landscape.

“This is a great achievement for the Eskom Expo for Young Scientists, and the award serves as motivation to continue encouraging more students to participate in the Expo, which remains an ideal catalyst for unearthing the country’s brightest young minds, opening their eyes to the various options and exciting career opportunities in the extensive scientific world,” said Thava Govender, Eskom Group Executive for Generation, and Acting Group Executive for Sustainability & Risk.

Govender said that greater exposure to science, technology, engineering, mathematics and innovation (STEMI) activities from a young age was a critical driver for economic transformation and the creation of a better world for all.

The Eskom Expo for Young Scientists is a science fair, where students have a chance to showcase projects based on their own scientific investigations. The students are encouraged to conduct research in a field they are passionate about, and then to enter their projects in different fields of science, technology, engineering, mathematics and innovation.

This year saw thousands of young scientists competing at the Eskom Expo regional finals in the different provinces and presenting their projects to a panel of judges and industry experts. They competed for a much sought-after chance to represent their regions and provinces at the ISF, which will be held from 2 - 5 October in Johannesburg.
