‘More science based institutions needed in SA’

Science and Technology Minster Naledi Pandor on Saturday said the country should invest in more science based institutions.

She spoke at the launch of National Science Week in Durban and emphasised that social and economic development is dependent on science and technology.

Pandor said she hopes to attract more people to the field through the annual campaign.

“We need to improve our ability to teach science and maths at school. We need to expand our facilities…,” she said.
