Student Center, North-West University, Vaal Triangle Campus
8h00 – 16h00
A programme will be available at a later stage.
During the GeeXpo event learners from as young as Grade 8 are invited to take part in several mathematics and information sciences related activities, such as: a PAT (Practical Assessment Task) competition, a Mathematics Olympiad, a Statistics competition, a Robotics Challenge and interactive presentations by the Serious Games Institute of South Africa (SGI-SA) and the App factory where mobile applications are developed.
The importance of mathematics and science cannot be stressed enough, since these subjects are compulsory if students wish to undertake further studies in a number of fields that are very important to the economy and the further development of our country. These sectors include engineering, natural sciences, information technology and medicine. At the Vaal Triangle Campus we believe that we are the preferred choice when it comes to business and information technology. Apart from showcasing the different applications of mathematics and science within a university context, learners also stand the chance to win study bursaries and other cool prizes during the event.
There is no admittance fee and a cafeteria will be available throughout the day.
