Space Career Day: Pupils exposed to the endless universe

The KZN Department of Education’s director of Mathematics, Science and Technology, ICT and Curriculum Innovation, Lucky Mthetho, said the programme debunked the myth that a career in the space industry was unattainable.

“This is a very good initiative and will assist pupils across the province because historically, the explanation of space was perceived to be for the elite, but now we realise it’s a project that can be explained for everyone. Through the questions that are being asked today, you can hear that the youngsters today are extremely fascinated and want to get into this space. As the Department of Education, we promise that KZN schools will participate in similar activities in the near future,” Mthetho said.
