It's hip to be smart
Johannesburg - Young scientists from disadvantaged Gauteng communities have been competing at the inaugural Hip-to-be-Squared 3M Innovation Challenge.
They're all vying for the coveted title of “South Africa’s Top Young Innovators”
Backed by the Departments of Education and Science and Technology, the competition is designed to inspire innovation among grade 10 pupils.
As eNCA reporter Yusuf Omar reports, the sound of young minds working is nearly audible as the kids learn that being innovative isn't necessarily limited to the next smartphone technologies.
