Girls from previously disadvantaged schools in and around the Sedibeng and Metsimaholo regions will have their chances of succeeding in science, technology, engineering and mathematics (STEM) significantly boosted through a seminar.
The Vaal University of Technology will host the seminar at its Vanderbiljpark Campus on 15 August 2017.
The objective of the seminar is to create a platform for women who have excelled in STEM-related careers to interact and serve as role models for young girls and women, who are still at school and university.
