Welcome to Stellenbosch University

High Science meets High School

​Here we invite Stellenbosch University researchers from Science, Engineering, and Technology related fields to present their outstanding research findings in a simplified manner to young high school learners at a stage before they choose subjects that they will follow until Matric. The purpose is to inspire the learners and nudge them towards thinking about future studies and careers in science.
