The KZN Science Centre, through our partnership with parastatal giant Transnet (Pty)Ltd, has joined forces with their Maritime School of Excellence (MSoE) in the conceptualisation and development of a Mathematics bridging course for their young cadets to undertake as part of their preparation for their maritime training. To date the course has seen the first intake of 50 participants, all of which have successfully completed the programme; the objective being to revise and improve competencies in mathematics. With the first intake of participants having completed the course, a commendable progress has been noted including just over 86% achieving distinction passes. With the success of the first intake, the KZNSC is looking forward to working closely with the MSoE in ensuring the same success is carried through for the next 100 cadets.
