After registering, learners are required to upload the following completed project documents:

2. Project Report
3. Project Abstract

To assist learners with their Eskom Expo projects, a number of high quality educational resources are available on our resources page, click here, including a series of “How to…” pieces. Learners only need to spend 1 to 2 hours each day to complete the tasks for the day.

Following the steps will take you from a broad interest to a Hypothesis/ Engineering goal/ Design goal. This process is not linear, but is iterative, that is you can move back and forth between the steps. After this process, learners will be ready to write their research plan. A well thought-out and planned research project will have a greater chance of being successful.

Access the plan here.
