Secunda, Mpumalanga – Sasol, in partnership with the Mpumalanga government will, from 31 July - 4 August 2017, bring learners Sasol Techno X 201, which is regarded as the largest career guidance exhibition of its kind in South Africa.
The exhibition is aimed at high school learners from across the country.
The theme for this year’s Techno X, which is Sasol’s flagship career exhibition showcasing the endless possibilities available in technical, mathematics, science and technology disciplines, is “Dream. Explore. Become”.
“The intention behind Techno X is to motivate learners to dream big while empowering them to make these dreams a reality,” said Maureen Mboshane, Vice President for Corporate Affairs, Sasol Secunda Operations.
“This we do by exposing them to a world of career possibilities and opportunities within fields of science, technology, engineering and mathematics.”
More than 10 000 learners from different provinces are expected to attend this year’s Sasol Techno X, which promises to ignite their curiosity. There, learners will be exposed to what is possible through access to information on new and evolving careers within STEM-related fields, career guidance, and bursary opportunities from different institutions. Learners will also get to directly engage with academic institutions to get better insights on the fields of study they would like to pursue.
There will also be various exciting competitions for pupils to take part in. These include an art competition where learners with a creative talent will get to use this year’s Techno X them to produce artwork; and a science competition. Learners will also be challenged to create clothing garments using recyclable waste materials. These will be featured in a fashion show.

Sasol may, in this document, make certain statements that are not historical facts and relate to analyses and other information which are based on forecasts of future results and estimates of amounts not yet determinable. These statements may also relate to our future prospects, developments and business strategies. Examples of such
forward-looking statements include, but are not limited to, statements regarding exchange rate fluctuations, volume growth, increases in market share, total shareholder return, executing our growth projects and cost reductions, including in connection with our Business Performance Enhancement Programme and Response Plan. Words such as "believe", "anticipate", "expect", "intend", "seek", "will", "plan", "could", "may", "endeavour", "target", "forecast" and "project" and similar expressions are intended to identify such forward-looking statements, but are not the exclusive means of identifying such statements. By their very nature, forward-looking statements involve inherent risks and uncertainties, both general and specific, and there are risks that the predictions, forecasts, projections and other forward-looking statements will not be achieved. If one or more of these risks materialise, or should underlying assumptions prove incorrect, our actual results may differ materially from those anticipated. You should understand that a number of important factors could cause actual results to differ materially from the plans, objectives, expectations, estimates and intentions expressed in such forward-looking statements. These factors are discussed more fully in our most recent annual report on Form 20-F filed on 27 September 2016 and in other filings with the United States Securities and Exchange Commission. The list of factors discussed therein is not exhaustive; when relying on forward-looking statements to make investment decisions, you should carefully consider both these factors and other uncertainties and events. Forward-looking statements apply only as of the date on which they are made, and we do not undertake any obligation to update or revise any of them, whether as a result of new information, future events or otherwise.
