SABS hosted our LEAP 6 Girls
On Thursday, 29 May 2014, SABS hosted 57 girls from LEAP 6 (Ga-Rankuwa) as part of their Cell C Take a Girl Child to Work initiative. Our girls really enjoyed the experience and were inspired and motivated at the end of the day.
Two of the girls chatted about their experience:
Itumeleng Mosahoa said she had a great day and spoke enthusiastically about her experience, “I felt inspired watching the SABS employees work. The SABS employees made me understand their careers. They also showed us light and detraction practicals in their labs. This was great as it what we are studying in science at the moment and I now have a better understanding of the process.”
I was also impressed to see women in successful science careers.
Itumeleng is currently in Grade 11, and after her day at SABS she is inspired to further her studies in science and is considering a career in a lab environment.
Kgomotso Ratlou was keen on sharing her experience of the day. She said “I really enjoyed this day and felt privileged to be a part of it. I really enjoyed the lab experiments as most of the practical examples they showed us in their labs are what we are currently studying at school. This has given me an understanding of these practicals and has made me realise that I might be using them one day in my career.”
Kgomotso who is also in Grade 11 is interested in learning more about plastic technology as she was fascinated by this technology in the labs during their SABS tour.
The girls were treated to breakfast, lunch and all received certificates, bags, notebooks and diaries.
Thank you SABS for being such a wonderful inspiration to our girls.
