Siemens invests in young African innovators

Siemens has announced that it is committed to supporting and developing young, African innovators. Siemens extends its Eskom Expo partnership to schools in Ghana, Kenya, Uganda, Tanzania and Ethiopia.

23-27 September 2019, Birchwood Conference Centre in Johannesburg is buzz with hundreds of enthusiastic, young scientists and innovators from across the African continent, eager to showcase their inventive science projects at the Eskom Expo for young scientists.

Siemens is a major sponsor at this event and will be giving one student a life changing opportunity, to join other former expo winners at the Siemens Technical Academy in Berlin for a three-and-a-half-year apprenticeship programme, then a guaranteed job at Siemens after completion. The company has also committed to supporting the development of young African innovators through its partnership with various schools in different countries on the continent.

Two students and one educator from schools in Kenya, Uganda, Tanzania and Ethiopia have received sponsorship to attend the event as well as a chance for their best performing students to participate in the expo.
