ArcelorMittal Science Club is based at the Science Centre intended to provide opportunities for learners to explore science. Our Science Club fuels the wonder and the joy of learning Science in interactive, fun, informative and challenging ways. The club serves as a support base for learners participating in science expos, science Olympiad and science fairs.
The Aim of the Science Club is to provide opportunity for learners to explore aspects of science that are not always possible within the constraints of a normal school timetable.
To assist matriculants with their early applications to tertiary institutions.
To get students involved in science club activities.
To challenge gifted learners as well as spark the interest of struggling learners.
To enhance the positive experiences that learners have with science by allowing them to explore their own ideas and interests.
To build the confidence of members as they develop problem solving skills.
