How we started
One centre in 2005
Our programme in 2005 we started with one centre at Dobsonville, Soweto with 140 Grade 12 students
Our Tipping Point in 2008
Our students performed outstandingly in their Grade 12 end of year exams, 140 students achieved 84 STEM distinctions and 10 students achieved 100% in Maths.
Our results were a testament to a proven programme, we started approaching corporate funders for support to grow.
Years Established (2005-2020)
total decent passes in Maths & Science
Maths & Science Distinctions
Our programme was initiated by STEM educators 15 years ago in Dobsonville Soweto. We noticed that students were performing poorly in Mathematics and Physical Science. We gathered committed educators and began planning our response.
In 2008, our programme reached a tipping point. Our 140 students produced:
- 22 C’s
- 34 B’s
- 84 distinctions
- and 10 students achieved 100% in Maths
We could offer tuition over weekends to a small group of students to boost their STEM performance. We wanted to start small, achieve outstanding results, then scale our model to advance Maths and Science performance on a large scale.
Our programme was initiated by STEM educators 15 years ago in Dobsonville Soweto, South africa’s largest township post apartheid. We noticed that students were passing Mathematics and Physical Science with poor performance and something needed to be done.
