Oliver Diggle (middle) from St. Georges is the overall primary school winner in the Khomas Regional Science, Mathematics and Technology Fair. He was presented with his trophy by Debmarine CEO, Otto Shikongo and supported by his proud mother, Mrs Diggle.

Oliver Diggle, a Grade 5 learner from St. Georges Diocesan School, submitted a science project that focuses on generating electricity from the ocean waves, for his entry in the Khomas Regional Science, Mathematics and Technology Fair. “Extracting energy from renewable sources like sea water is less damaging to our environment compared to traditional resources like fossil fuels” he said stating the reason for his scientific investigation. His project was voted overall winner for primary schools.
The Khomas Regional Science, Mathematics and Technology Fair took place earlier in July and was sponsored by Debmarine Namibia with N$30,000.
The overall winner in the secondary school division is Ella Alexander from the Windhoek International School.
Debmarine CEO, Otto Shikongo said his company appreciates the Ministry of Education’s efforts, for creating platforms such as the Science Fair that unlocks science potential in the young generation. “Debmarine Namibia is proud to be associated with young Namibian scientists in the making, and we take pride in giving our support where we can.  Supporting initiatives that promote an interest in science, mathematics and technology in young people, positively contributes to the realisation of Vision 2030” he said.
The Khomas winners will go on to participate in the National Science Fair, along with winning contestants from other regions. Winners received medals, certificates and cash prizes.  The overall winners from the primary and secondary schools received floating trophies.
