Register to take part in Eskom Expo for Young Scientists

Registration to take part in the biggest science expo on the African continent is open. Learners in grades 4 to 12, along with learners from TVET colleges that are in NC2 to NC4, are invited to register their Eskom Expo projects by clicking here. Learners who have previously registered can click here to log in and update their details.

Taking part in Eskom Expo can offer a variety of benefits for learners, including the acquisition of research and experimentation skills; networking with other young scientists; learning about cutting-edge technology and research; improving presentation skills; and gaining recognition and awards.

The 2022 Eskom Expo International Science Fair, which took place in December, saw a total of 253 of South Africa’s top researchers and innovators compete alongside 17 international young scientists from Brazil, Ghana, Kenya, Lesotho, Mexico, Mozambique, Turkey and Zimbabwe.

The top senior Eskom Expo scientist, who was awarded a R75,000 cash prize, was Yu Tang Shan from St John’s College in Johannesburg, for the research project entitled: “SMARter: Soil Moisture Artificially Intelligent”. The top junior Eskom Expo scientist, who was awarded a R50,000 cash prize was Minje Le Roux from Durbanville Primary School in Cape Town, for the research project entitled: “Tricky Traffic”.

Other prizes included: full-time and partial bursaries, cash prizes, the opportunity to attend the Stockholm International Youth Science Seminar during Nobel Week, laptops, tablet computers, work-based exposure during school holidays, along with licenses to use Robot Simulation software and eLearning.

Eskom Expo activities this year will include workshops hosted in each province around the country, along with research and innovation camps, district expos (where learners receive valuable input from a team of experts to improve their research), followed by regional expos. Dates for all activities will be announced in due course.

Learners are encouraged to start working on their research projects, which should fit within one of the 13 Eskom Expo categories. Learners who need a launchpad can click here for a plan to get started with their research plans.

A number of resources and templates are available to assist learners with their research projects. By using the Expo for Young Scientists App, learners have access to the latest e-learning project management software for creating robust project experiences. Expo has various activities to engage with learners, teachers, judges, regional science fair directors and provincial coordinators sparking discussions and inspiring new ideas.
