WOMEN IN SCIENCE

THEME: Equity, Diversity, and Inclusion: Water Unites Us

Hierdie jaar, vier ons die 7de Internationale Dag van Dogters en Vrouens in Wetenskap.

In 2015 is ‘n besluit deur die “United Nations General Assembly” geneem om jaarliks fokus op hierdie dag te plaas. Die dag is opsy gesit om op die kritiese rol wat vrouens en dogters in Wetenskap en Tegnologie  kan speel, te fokus.

It is a well-known fact that the field of Science and Technology is dominated by males with women only making up approximately 28% of the workforce in Science, Technology, Engineering and Mathematics (STEM). It is imperative to increase this percentage as this will contribute to new talent, fresh viewpoints and increased creativity as well as the achievement of the internationally agreed development goals, including the 2030 Agenda for Sustainable Development.

By Laerskool Eversdal word al ons kinders, seuns en dogters, blootgestel aan STEM en die geleentheid gegun om in klasverband, asook na skool, deel te neem aan STEM-aktiwiteite. Sodoende is probleemoplossing ‘n prettige  deel van leer op hierdie gebied.

We, at Eversdal Primary School, are proud of the opportunities given to all our children to develop their STEM skills; we have Equity, Diversity and Inclusion allowing each child to develop their potential and ultimately make an informed choice in their future studies and ultimately in their chosen career.

How to engage more girls in STEM.
