All delegates of the Global Evidence Summit are encouraged to donate their conference backpacks to local high school learners at the Centre Of Science and Technology (COSAT www.cosat.co.za). Donation boxes will be available at the registration area ta the conference venue.
COSAT school opened its doors in 1999 in response to the shortage of quality Maths and Science matriculants from township schools in the Western Cape. Initially, COSAT offered only Grades 10 to 12 and students with mathematical talent would be invited to leave their high schools at the end of Grade 9 to complete their school careers at COSAT. COSAT’s mission is to provide challenging educational opportunities of a high quality for our students who are drawn in and around Khayelitsha, to become extra-ordinary leaders who are competent and confident in their communities and broader society.
