Matric Physicsal Science Workshop : 11-12 August
Start Date/Time: 11 August 2018
End Date/Time: 12 August 2018
Recurring Event: One time event
Importance: Normal Priority
Location: Cape Town

Get Prepared! Welcome to the Cape Town Science Centres first MATRIC PHYSICAL SCIENCE WORKSHOP focusing on ESSENTIAL SKILLS to write the Physical Science final exam!

The Cape Town Science Centre, in partnership with the UNIZULU Science Centre, recognises the challenges facing the performance of our Matric learners and wishes to launch a one-day intensive workshop which will directly impact the skill and cognitive ability of matric learners, enabling them to better perform in their forthcoming final exams. Physical Science Grade 11 and 12 learners and teachers are welcome to this workshop.

The workshop will cover Physical Science Paper 1 and Paper 2. We shall focus on some of the skills necessary to succeed in the final exam papers. The workshop includes practical demonstration on certain prescribed and recommended experiments, in-depth explanation of the theory, a strategy for approaching complex and difficult content areas, and review of previous CAPS exam questions. This skills-based workshop is a combination of content review before the exams and enrichment to better equip the learners to excel in the forthcoming exams. Interpretation skills will be highlighted within in the workshop, in particular interpreting graphs, models, diagrams, formulas etc. and providing a strategy which learners can use to read, interpret and produce required content (graph, diagram, formula etc). Strategies for computation based questions will also be examined.


DATES: Saturday, 11 August OR Sunday, 12 August (Teachers, Grade 11 & 12 learners)
TIME: 9:00 - 15:00 (incl. a lunch break – please bring lunch or coffee shop on site)
VENUE: Cape Town Science Centre, 370B Main Road, Observatory
OPEN TO: All Physical Science Learners (Grade 11 and 12) and Teachers (FET).
COST: R60 per person

Image: Additional support needed for science learners in high schools The momentum we create by investing in these 21 schools in a consistent, multi-activity & practical manner, helps build a pipeline of future minds

As we enter the 2019 academic year, the stark reality is that the extra tuition often required to achieve good grades in subjects such as science and mathematics is out of reach of most pupils in Cape Town. However, responsible corporate organisations such as Astron Energy (formerly Chevron South Africa) are ensuring much-needed support for these pupils and their schools.   Read More...
