Singita Teaching & Technology Programme – Next Einstein Competition

‘The important thing is not to stop questioning. Curiosity has its own reason for existing’ – Albert Einstein.

The purpose of Africa’s first Next Einstein competition was to harness the power of curiosity in young people from rural communities in South Africa. Entrants from 19 primary schools in the Xhimungwe district near Singita Sabi Sand were challenged to generate innovative solutions to critical issues that they identified in their communities. Aspiring Einsteins submitted their entries using devices provided via the Teaching and Technology programme that equipped these schools with satellite technology.

In July, the top three winning teams (each comprised of two students and a teacher-mentor) embarked on an educational tour to some of the most exciting destinations of significance in South Africa. The trip was carefully crafted to expose our own Next Einsteins to inspirational figures in the fields of Science, Conservation, History and the Arts.
