Nolo (Lehlogonolo) is a grade 11 learner at St. Marys DSG (Pretoria) school who approached SANSA to complete her requirement of a “Work Experience Day”.
SANSA pursues multiple opportunities to expose as many young South Africans to the growing local space science and technology arena in the country. The outreach teams from the various SANSA programmatic areas came together to explain to Nolo, the work the Agency does in the specialised area of space, both locally and abroad.
On Nolo’s arrival, she was given a tour of the Space Operations facility. She then had an opportunity to engage with various staff members and learnt about maintenance and signals and even got a demonstration on the oscilloscopes after being exposed to information on the other exciting careers available across the Agency disciplines.
Her information-packed and inspiring day was wrapped up with a few photos and a space agency goodie bag. Nolo is now determined to pursue a career in science and hopefully join the Agency in the future.
