Mfundo Makhanya of Analytical Chemistry addressing the learners of Palmerton in the lab

Learners from Palmerton High School in Lusikisiki, in the Eastern Cape, can now look at 21 July 2022 as a day that is different from any other. This is the day when they visited MUT for what the university offers.

Learners used the opportunity to ask questions, and when their principal asked them to comment, their responses were telling.

The school’s Deputy Principal, Thulani Nkwali, asked one of the learners to comment on what they saw at MUT. The learner appreciated that she got an opportunity to come to MUT and learn about what the university offered, and got to see the University’s laboratories. She also said that the enrollment-related information they acquired would empower them when they apply for registration.

The learners were also taken to laboratories where lab technicians gave them a lecture on lab activities, and how lab instruments are used.
