The South African Government has identified 100 scarce skills nationally in the workplace and KRISP has taken this opportunity to empower the youth and contribute towards education by taking the 100 Scarce Skills Campaign Indaba in Durban - 31 July to 2 August 2018.
Lots of interested faces and lots of good questions about what is a DNA and why do we generate and analyze DNA sequencing! KRISP Scarce skills Indaba.
We have prepared a lot of fun activities, such as build your own DNA model with beads and origami. We are also discussing how more young people can be attracted to Science Technology, Engineering and Mathematics (STEM) careers.
High school students learned about genetic variation and DNA mutations with beads and origami! Having fun with high school children in South Africa.
