Fulton School for the Deaf Pupils Visit UKZN Science Centre

Fulton School for the Deaf Pupils Visit UKZN Science Centre
Pupils at Fulton School for the Deaf in Hillcrest enjoy building air-powered bottle jets at the UKZN Science Centre.

More than 40 young learners from the Fulton School for the Deaf in Hillcrest were hosted by UKZN-STEC for a day.

It was an interesting and fascinating experience for the Science Centre staff who got to learn a bit of sign language and were given sign names based on their character, behaviour and appearance.

The programme for the older children in the group included building an air-powered bottle jet using 2 litre cold drink bottles which they raced outside. Younger pupils and those with special needs were given the task of constructing dinosaur puppets which they then took home as gifts.

The day’s events ended with a tour around the Science Centre for the youngsters who showed their appreciation by tapping their index fingers on their thumbs.
