SOUTH AFRICA ON MISSION TO MAKE SCIENCE EDUCATION ACCESSIBLE, INTERESTING

PRETORIA, The South African government is on a mission to make science interesting and accessible in schools, with those in the rural areas being especially targeted.

In KwaZulu-Natal Province, thousands of pupils are set to benefit from a mobile computer laboratory project. Twenty nine rural schools in the uMkhanyakude District form part of this computer-based learning pilot project.

The schools have received computers which are installed with mathematics and science software.

Minister of Science and Technology Naledi Pandor says: “What we are trying to do is improve performance in maths and science in schools in South Africa and we are targeting especially rural-based schools because we believe there is talent that is not getting the support that it should.”

Education officials in KwaZulu-Natal believe the multi-million rand initiative will help improve results in science and maths.

The Member of the Executive Council (MEC) for Education in the provincial legislature, Peggy Nkonyeni, says: “We are very excited as a province indeed, it will assist us a lot because we have not performed as expected as a province of KwaZulu-Natal.

“We are a province that has decided to focus on maths and science in particular.”

Teachers and pupils are upbeat about the facilities. One of the teachers involved says: “Using computers to teach is far easier than using chalkboards because using chalkboards takes longer to explain.”

A pupil at the function says: “It is helping us a lot because sometimes in the rural areas mostly you learn with computers when you are finished at school because we do not have computers.”

The roll-out of the project will continue countrywide.

SOUTH AFRICA HOSPITAL SUCCESSFULLY PERFORMS ROBOTIC-ASSISTED SURGERY

The Urology Hospital in Pretoria has successfully conducted six successful robotic-assisted partial removal of a cancerous kidney (partial nephrectomy). The first surgery was conducted late last year.

Urologist Dr Marius Bongers said here over the weekend that these kinds of surgeries enhanced the patients’ health.

In terms of that, it is a minimally invasive surgery with all the inherent advantages of a minimal invasive surgery and conserving in this case the kidney functionally afterwards to enhance the patient’s health,” he added.

“We do not remove the entire kidney if there is a possibility of removing only the tumour from the kidney to prevent as much kidney function as possible.

Bongers said the robotic procedure had helped in addressing some of the challenges doctors faced during surgery, including patient’s blood loss.

That is what is important in minimal invasive surgery is all the advantages of it, the first thing is that it is much less painful because it is not a big incision into the body, the patients do not bleed much, the recovery is very fast, the hospital stay is quite shorty and for economically active people this is really important so if you do this surgery you get back to the work force sooner.

Bongers said the accessibility of such technology placed South Africa on par with other countries when it comes to health care.

People tend to talk about the future robotic surgery (but it) is actually very current in the rest of the world, we were a little behind but we realised that this is the way to go and as a private hospital we decided to purchase the robot to do these things.
