High Gear and NAACAM are inviting members to donate towards engineering toolkits. As part of the project-based learning methodology adopted by High Gear, toolkits have been created and distributed to mechanical engineering and electrical engineering lecturers at ELANGENI FET COLLEGE in Durban-Pinetown and Eastcape Midlands TVET College in Kariega (formerly Uitenhage).
These toolkits support lecturers with a practical demonstration of fundamental engineering principles. Additionally, students can interact with these toolkits and enhance their practical technical skills. Currently, mechanical engineering and electrical engineering lecturers have been issued with their toolkits and have utilised them effectively to improve teaching and learning outcomes.
The call for donation intends to further enhance existing toolkits. By making a financial donation (for singular items or all), your company will benefit in the following ways:
· Grants contribution in cash– 100% recognition value towards SED element of B-BBEE scorecard
· Long-term development of a skilled pipeline of engineering graduates with strong technical capabilities
There are two types of toolkits: an electrical engineering and a mechanical engineering toolkit. The following equipment is required for these toolkits:
· New toolkit box
· Asynchronous Motor
· Component Display Board
· Stepper Motor
· Extra Weights
· Different Beam Material
