This month marks the commencement of the Mathematics Bridge-In programme that The KZN Science Centre is implementing with SA’s largest rail port and pipeline company Transnet (Pty) Ltd through their Maritime School of Excellence. The programme will see 100 participants undergoing supplementary maths education in an effort to prepare them for their Maritime training thereafter. Participants were sharply dressed in their Transnet uniforms and very eager as day one kicked off on 19 Jan 2015, where the familiar classroom setting set the tone for the hard work that lay ahead. Every participant was provided with a resource pack which will prove vital in the upcoming lessons for each to excel in the programme. The KZN Science Centre is excited to be working with the Maritime School of Excellence in driving capacity building initiatives and creating a greater awareness of Maritime studies to the masses.
