UP's Junior Tukkie programme offering free online lessons in maths and science

Written by: Neo Koza

The University of Pretoria’s Junior Tukkie programme has begun hosting mathematics and physical science online lessons for free.

The lessons are open to Grade 12 pupils from all around South Africa.

Junior Tukkies project manager Dr Petrus Lombard says this forms part of the programme's winter school.

Most of our lessons are pre-recorded but we also have livestreams and virtual feedback sessions weekly or two times to three times a month.

A lot of schools don't have enough qualified teachers and we realised as the university if we can assist with maths and science it can help a lot.
