uTyala STEM Institute Welcomes You
Critical, Cognitive, Independent
Why we do what we do
uTyala STEM Institute was established in 2018 with the aim of addressing the gaps that exist between high school and tertiary as well as between tertiary and industry. Through a combined 20+ years of experience in engineering, commerce and audit, the uTyala management team have developed a deep understanding of what is required to develop critical, cognitive and independent thinking skills.
uTyala is a Xhosa word that means “to sow”. It is our mission to plant the seed of enquiry into the minds of our children by equipping them with the necessary skills to independently solve problems. Our vision is to develop critical, cognitive and independent thinkers who can confidently formulate viable solutions to problems faced by their communities.
In a world where technology is becoming part of every profession and conversation, our objective is to ensure that our kids are adequately prepared for the 4th Industrial Revolution. As such, through extensive research, uTyala STEM Institute has carefully selected world leading “technology enablers” that are applicable to the context of the South African education sector. This enables our kids to enjoy the same opportunities that are made available in so called “first world countries”, resulting in a leveled playing field for all.
