AQUALIBRIUM, the SAICE-WRC Schools Water Competition regional competition 2013 for the Johannesburg Branch was held at SAICE House last week. DRA sponsored the competition where eight schools from Ivory Park and Tembisa participated for a spot in the finals of this worthwhile competition.
The winning team was Eqinisweni Secondary School, Ivory Park in MIdrand. They beat the following secondary schools: Boitemelong, Ivory Park, Kaalfontein, Phomolong, Tembisa West, Tswelopele, and Winnie Mandela.
Neo Mogohloane, a civil engineer with DRA, assisted in organising the regional competition on behalf of the Johannesburg Branch and also secured the sponsorship from her company.
The educators and learners all enjoyed the challenge and had very positive feedback on the experience to act as ‘civil engineers’, designing, constructing and operating a water distribution network.
Eqinisweni Secondary School will compete with the winners from all the other regions in the finals on Friday 16 August at the Sci-Bono Discovery Centre in Newtown, Johannesburg.
