Young scientist awarded

Abigail Bloem from the Eunice High School in Bloemfontein excelled at the 2019 Eskom Expo International Science Fair (ISF).

The fair was held at the Birchwood Hotel and Conference Centre in Boksburg from 24 to 27 September.

Abigail’s project, Bright Solution, secured her the top junior Eskom Expo ISF 2019 scientist award and saw her pocket a cool R50 000 cash prize to use how she pleases.

The project looked at using a renewable energy system to ensure optimal function of traffic lights which contribute to the woes of motorists in the country. An inbuilt fault detection system instantly reports faults, via SMS, to the control centre where technicians are made aware of the problems.

Abigail, who previously won the Eskom Special Award for the Best Development in the Bloemfontein region, is part of a group of learners who will be interviewed for selection to represent South Africa at prominent international science fairs in the United States, China, Taiwan, Turkey, Zambia and Kenya. This will be finalised in January 2020.

The award for top senior Eskom Expo ISF 2019 scientist with a cash prize of R75 000 went to Iqrak Faki from Star College Cape Town Sybrand Park Campus for the project, Fractal Exploration: the 3-dimensional Kock snowflake.

Other top performing learners from the Free State were awarded prizes in the form of bursaries, laptops and other cash prizes.
