Another successful science expo at Calvary Christian College

The learners put their heads together to prove that science is a solution.

The Endemic Science Expo, hosted by Calvary Christian College on May 10 and 11, was an explosive event.

The expo allows budding scientists the opportunity to solve problems within their community through science.

Karabo Motloung from Calvary Christian College received the first prize for the younger students. His idea involved the hydrolysis of water into oxygen and hydrogen, where the oxygen would supply hospitals and the hydrogen used as an alternative energy source.
