Youth Day in South Africa is a time when we reflect on how far we’ve come as a country and the challenges we face. There’s no doubt that there have been big advances in South Africa. At the dawn of democracy in 1994, 58% of public-school learners in Grade 12 passed matric, while in 2021 that figure was 76.4%.


South Africa has made great strides towards more equitable gender representation in Science, Technology, Engineering and Mathematics (STEM) over the past decade, meaning that there has never been a better time for young women to consider a career in STEM-related fields. That's especially the case with the shortage of skills in STEM in South Africa.

 


Many South African companies across industry sectors aim to become digitally transformed. To accomplish this, they need access to tools that help them adapt to this new dynamic. This is where the Internet of Things (IoT) becomes a critical micro-service within an ecosystem of advanced solutions that can enable this, according to local IoT specialists Trinity IoT.


In South Africa, only 13% of graduates leaving tertiary institutions with qualifications in science, technology, engineering and mathematics (STEM) are women.


It's full steam ahead for leading South African NGO, PROTEC, as it prepares to launch GE's inaugural Next Engineers – a global further education readiness programme– to the first cohort of 750 high school students across Johannesburg in early 2022, in a mission to inspire the next generation of engineers: the innovators, problem-solvers, and leaders of tomorrow.


The accessibility of sophisticated artificial intelligence (AI) and machine learning (ML) algorithms, enabled by the high-performance capabilities of cloud-based data centres, mean insurers can more readily embrace a culture of innovation when it comes to their traditional approaches to business processes.


As nearly 900 000 matric students complete their final exams this week, it is vital for them to start planning for their future
