Young Scientists Tanzania (YST) is a unique and innovative programme which runs a comprehensive, national science outreach initiative, as well as an Annual YST exhibition and competition in which secondary students showcase their research and demonstrate their scientific talents.
This year, Nigel Whittaker, Songas’ Managing Director, presented the winners of the chemical, physical and mathematical sciences category at the Julius Nyerere International Convention Centre in Dar es Salaam.
Since 2012, Songas has been a silver sponsor of the YST exhibition and awards and has actively participated in the judging process. In recognition of this contribution YST upgraded Songas’ status from Silver to Gold sponsor at zero additional costs. Later in the year, Songas representatives will visit the winning school to present cash prizes to students, their teacher and the school’s choice of textbooks or desktop computers.
