Vision - Inspiring Young Scientists and Researchers
Eskom Expo for Young Scientists is an exposition, or science fair, where students have a chance to show others their projects about their own scientific investigations.
At Expo, students can discuss their work with judges, teachers and students from other schools, with parents and with other interested people.
By participating at expo students will increase their awareness of the wonders of science, add to their knowledge and broaden their scientific horizons.
Our Mission is to develop young scientists who are able to identify a problem, analyse information, find solutions and communicate findings effectively.
Learners can only participate in Eskom Expo for Young Scientists via their school. Interested students must ask their teachers to contact the relevant Expo regions
Teachers requiring participation information please contact your nearest regional science fair director.

The INESPO (International Environment & Sustainability Project Olympiad) is an international Olympiad that was first organized nationally on May 16, 2009. Since 2010, the Olympiad has extended to an international level with over 40 different countries participating every year. In 2014, the 6th INESPO event was held from June 1 - 6 in Den Haag, Netherlands.
INESPO is intended for students between 13 and 18 years from secondary/high schools and vmbo-, havo- and vwo-schools in the Netherlands. By organizing INESPO, the Cosmicus Foundation, IVN, DuurzaamDoor, NPOINT and the GLOBE Program want to bring attention to environmental problems in schools across the Netherlands and the world. Their goal is to involve students in this important matter and bring communal consensus on social environmental values and to eventually eliminate the environmental problems through education.
