UWC Astro sponsors Molo Mhlaba visit to SAAO

Girls from Grades 1 & 2 from the Molo Mhlaba School (www.molomhlaba.org) in Khayelitsha visited the South African Astronomical Observatory today to celebrate International Women’s Day. The trip was made possible by the Astro UWC department, which covered the costs of the visit.

The school, in partnership with Astro UWC and the Office of Astronomy for Development, coordinates Astro Molo Mhlaba (www.astromolomhlaba.org), an award-winning programme that brings astronomy to girls of all ages in Khayelitsha and Philippi (www.astromolomhlaba.org).
