Sasol exposes learners to career possibilities in Maths and Science at Sasol Techno X 2017.

Sasol Techno X 2017, Sasol’s flagship career and education event that aims to encourage high school learners to choose MATHEMATICS and SCIENCE in school, officially kicked off in Secunda, Mpumalanga on Monday, 31 July 2017. The event is taking place in Secunda for the second time at the Sasol Recreational Club, and will end on Friday, 04 August 2017.

“Sasol Techno X provides a convenient, one stop shop where learners are exposed to relevant subject matter, information on tertiary education, career guidance, bursaries and learnership opportunities,” said Gerrit Viljoen, Sasol Senior Vice President: Capital Projects at Group Technology.

“During this year’s event, we hope to host learners from more than 250 schools within the five districts of Mpumalanga. It is our hope that through Sasol Techno X, we will be able to open the eyes and minds of these learners to a world of possibilities in the fields of MATHEMATICS, SCIENCE and TECHNOLOGY,” he added.

To date, Sasol Techno X, which initially took place only in Sasolburg, Free State, has attracted more than 360 000 young enquiring minds, inspiring them with talks, displays, workshops, and hands-on activities, revealing the endless possibilities in SCIENCE and TECHNOLOGY. For Sasol, the event is one of the many ways that the company is demonstrating its commitment to developing South Africa’s future leaders in SCIENCE, TECHNOLOGY, ENGINEERING and MATHEMATICS related fields.

“I must commend Sasol and other big businesses that have made time and space to avail their career opportunities to our young learners,” said Reginah Mhaule, MEC for Education in Mpumalanga.

“As Government our obligation and priority is to improve the lives of the people of this province and we are highly appreciative of the private-public partnership that is at work now.”

More than 20 000 learners are expected to attend Sasol Techno X this week.
