The pitch lessons focused more on individuals presentation skills during presentation and time management. Previous Pitches were used as examples of how it should look like together with what is expected from each team.


The groups joined an excursion journey at 12:00 in the afternoon to the Darville Wastewater Treatment Plant in Pietermaritzburg. The plant was recently upgraded to a 100ML/D with operating capacity that range to 70%.
