Two of the qualities that are absolutely commendable about the Centre are that it involves an abundance of passion and respect that the employees have towards their work as well as the community. The Centre has different programs that are taking place, all which are targeted at different demographics.
The programs range from outreach where the Centre teaches non-focused schools in subjects like: Mathematics, Physical Science and Life Science. The Science Communication team provides science experiments to active schools in the community that do not have excess to laboratories which in the long interim will contribute towards their SBA marks.
