FRAME 1 THE WESTERN CAPE



                                       LYDIA: Hello, my name is Lydia. I will be coordinating this

                                       segment of the conference on behalf of the UWC OUTREACH

                                       GROUP.

                                       The Western Cape, one of the 9 provinces of South Africa, lies

                                       at the most southern tip of Africa. Here the Atlantic and Indian

                                       Oceans meet.

                                       The UWC OUTREACH GROUP consists of more than 500

                                       learners from more than 20 township and rural schools within a

                                       radius of about 200 kilometres of the University of the Western

                                       Cape.

                                       Let me introduce you to the team representing this group.



FRAME 2 UNIVERSITY OF THE WESTERN CAPE


                                       JAYDE: Hi, I’m Jayde! I live in a place called Retreat and

                                       every Thursday after school I travel about 30 kilometres to

                                       Bellville to attend the special mathematics revision classes held

 in one of the Lecture rooms at UWC.
FRAME 3 SALDAHNA BAY



                        MARIO: Hi there! I’m Mario! Unfortunately no one from

                        Saldahna Bay could join us today. Saldahna Bay is about

                        150 kilometres outside Cape Town. The group there meets

                        fortnightly at various venues for mathematics revision

                        classes or other projects in mathematics.




FRAME 4 WORCESTER




                       ROZANNE: Hello! Rozane is my name! The

                       Worcester/Ceres Area is about 120 kilometres outside Cape

                       Town. We meet every Saturday morning. (The grazing

                       cows in the pic are not a part of our group).

    FRAME 6 PROJECT WORK


                                    JAYDE: In our project work we covered some

                                     aspects of the following topics


                                    •The distance of the earth from the Sun

                                    •Our star the Sun

                                    •Photovoltaic a power source in poor areas




FRAME 7 THE DISTANCE BETWEEN THE SUN AND THE EARTH



                               WAYNE

                                •The concept of parallax was new to us

                               • The distance to the sun in terms of triangulation

                               we could manage

                               • We found Kepler laws interesting, but our school

                               syllabus does include ellipses.
FRAME 8 OUR STAR THE SUN



                              TSELANE:

                              •Dr Masons’ motivational talk at Worcester, Saldanha

                              Bay and at the UWC Campus gave us new insights into

                              this our star

                              • She mentioned that Galileo, Newton and Einstein are no

                              longer with us, but we the children of the rainbow

                              nation could become the scientists of the future.




FRAME 9 VOLTAICS I




                           ENRICO

                           •Solar energy is presently being used extensively in South

                           African townships

                           •Photovoltaic coverts solar energy directly in electricity

                           •South Africa experiences abundant sunshine all year round.

                           This source of energy is renewable non - pollutant and does

                           not contribute to global warming.

                           •The high initial installation cost can be recovered quickly.
FRAME 10 PHOTOVOLTAICS




                         LORENTIA: In the diagram the conversion of sunlight into
                         electricity is illustrated




FRAME 11 QUESTION




                         ROZANNE:

                         •Distances in the solar system can be measured by bouncing

                         radar beams off Venus or lazer light from a mirror placed on the

                         moon by astronauts.

                         •Any comments? ? ?
