We have started a movement to get all South Africans to use Science, Technology and Innovation to build a better future for us all and we want you to be a part of it. Scientists, Technologists and Innovators are just like you. They’re curious. They ask questions. They try new things. The desire to try new things has been inside you from the very beginning. Now take that desire, apply science and you can change the world.
We are calling on South Africa to discover Gold in Grey Matter. Science and technology enable the realisation of ideas. Ideas that will improve the way we live and the way the world operates. Ideas that will solve problems; answer questions. Ideas that will give us a better understanding of the universe and our place in it. Ideas that create better tomorrows. These golden ideas are sitting inside of you, inside your grey matter, waiting to be born.
We are on a mission in Mzansi to make all South Africans realise that the gold of our tomorrow does not lie underground but in the minds of our current and future technologists, scientists, engineers, and innovators. Our beautiful country is a gold mine of ideas and new inventions just waiting to happen.
We want South Africa to understand how vital Science, Technology and Innovation is in creating a better and more prosperous future for our country. We want to encourage South Africans to study it and take up careers in Science, Technology and Innovation fields. We want to encourage more people and corporations to invest in Science and Technology and help translate scientific discoveries into products and tangible solutions. We want South Africa to understand that scientific knowledge and new technologies are the building blocks for economic growth. We want to celebrate unsung South-African heroes and heroines who have shaped South Africa and are changing our tomorrow.
