Youngman Southern Cape Proud To Be Involved In Development Of New Youth and Science Centre
A new centre in Thembalethu, George, is set to ignite a passion for science amongst young people living in the area.
The Inkcubeko Youth and Science Centre offers a safe space for youth to explore how the world around them works. It is also designed to encourage more young people to pursue future studies in science, technology, arts, engineering and mathematics.
Funded through the Hasso Plattner Trust, it is a partnership between government, academia (University of Cape Town), civil society, and the private sector.
Youngman Southern Cape supplied the roof sheeting for the centre, which was constructed by local company, Semper Prima. The sheeting specified was BlueScope Steel’s Clean COLORBOND® range.
Housed within the three buildings are an admin section, a youth-friendly clinic, a recreational hall, a science laboratory and an exhibit hall.
