|Role modelling project|
The role modelling project is SAASTA’s contribution towards recognition of professionals who excel in the critical areas of mathematics, science and technology education. The project exposes learners to people with careers in Science, Engineering and Technology (SET) with the aim of providing learners with role appropriate models and mentors. Learners normally meet and interact with at least four role models with different careers at each of the interventions.
