Unizulu Science Center
Empowers Africa made a grant to Unizulu Science Center (USC) for the implementation of a new interactive math exhibit in addition to the center’s existing science exhibits.
The UNIZULU Science Centre (USC) is an interactive center operating under Zululand University in South Africa. The center has been open for over 25 years and approximately 3,000 students visit annually. USC has been conducting outreach science and math programs to underprivileged communities in South Africa in order to bring science to communities and schools that otherwise wouldn’t be able to visit the science center. The outreach program has grown to the scale of a small science center. The program targets rural disadvantaged communities.
With this grant the science center will grow to serve not only scientific discovery but also mathematical comprehension among this underserved demographic of children.
