Randfontein High School visited HySA Infrastructure to better understand the different technologies and applications of hydrogen before competing in the National Schools Debates competition, one of SAASTA’s flagship projects. The aim of this competition is to provide a platform for learners to debate on topical issue science issues around their communities and also to build a pool of budding science communicators in the country. The competition is targeted at Grade 9 to 11 learners. The debates team from each province consists of 5 learners, of which 2 must be science students. (More photos from the competition can be found here.)

Neels le Roux attended a workshop held on the 16th of April at the Royal Bafokeng Lebone college presenting information about the different technologies and applications of hydrogen.

Here is the feedback from them:

“Thank you so much for your time last Friday. It paid off: Our team won the Provincials on Saturday. The adjudicators from the DST mentioned in their justification speech that we were the only school who managed to balance our arguments with the Science of HFCT. Thank you for that.”
