Scientific resources are developed for beneficiaries to access knowledge and skills through self-directed learning to develop scientific competencies.
Learners are hosted for a week of fun, hands-on science, where they conduct their mini-research projects and learn all about data gathering, analysis and presentation.
Educators are encouraged and equipped to creatively teach science and incorporate monitoring and data gathering exercises in the classroom. SAEON runs teacher training workshops, awareness events, school visits and assists with the development of teaching resources and worksheets
The SAEON Kids competition encourages learners to be curious and develop innovative environmental science projects. The iNaturalist competition enables learners to explore their surroundings and collect biodiversity data.
The South African Environmental Observation Network (SAEON) in keeping abreast with changes in technology and pedagogy has developed an e-learning programme on the Biomes of South Africa for grade 10 Life Science aligned to the South African Curriculum Assessment and Policy Statements(CAPS).
