On Thursday, 1 December 2016. a number of ADESSA members and SchoolAdvisor members came together at the offices of Investec in Cape Town to explore collaboration opportunities. The event was sponsored by Investec.
After brief introductions about Investec, ADESSA and SchoodAdvisor the attendees, all seated around tables strung together to form one long table, had the opportunity to “speed date” the person sitting directly opposite. After 4 minutes, at the sound of a bell, all shifted clockwise two places to the left, to find a new partner.
All in attendance agreed that it was time well spent. New contacts were made and the potential for future partnerships is positive. A similar event is planned for Gauteng early in 2017.
Partnerships are important for running successeful projects in education. ADESSA and SchoolAdvisor have joined forces to enable the members of both organizations to find potential partners.
It is amazing to see what ADESSA members get up to!
Sangari South Africa, the provider of learning solutions, has launched the ‘F1 in Schools Technology Challenge’ 2016 race season in its search for a team to represent South Africa at the World Finals in 2017. The aim is for learners, between the ages of 11 and 19, to design, manufacture and race their own miniature Formula One cars.
The F1 in Schools Technology Challenge has become well-known worldwide as an educational competition that actively promotes Science, Technology, Engineering and Mathematics (STEM). There are over 44 countries participating, making it a prestigious and fun event where the value of learning is showing exceptional results.
“Registration for the programme is free for all schools in South Africa,” said Bez Sangari, MD of Sangari South Africa. “The F1 competition focuses on blended learning through a cross curricula approach where learners physically apply what is learnt in the classroom. The true value lies in how learners take ownership of their own learning.”
The teams wishing to enter the official competitions on regional, provincial, national or international level would have to source sponsorships as these have different entry costs. Teams would also need to source sponsorship for manufacturing their F1 cars.
