Siphuxolo Melamane – The Aspiring Agricultural Scientist

Readers may recall Siphuxolo winning the prize for the best Science Project at his school and being awarded a residential research trip on the SA Agulhas from Port Elizabeth. Whilst on board, his interest in the fi eld of environmental affairs really took off. After extensive research he realized that an environmental related career is where his passion lay.

As a result, in January of this year Siphuxolo started his studies towards a degree in Agricultural Science at the Wellington campus of CPUT (Cape Peninsula University of Technology). We wish Siphuxolo the very best in his endeavours.
