About us

Life after school can be challenging – that’s why HIP2B² wants to equip school learners with vital life skills, such as analytical thinking, problem-solving, a love of learning and a curious mindset. Launched after Mark Shuttleworth’s pioneering trip into space in 2002, HIP2B² is a unique initiative that promotes the study of science and technology related subjects.

HIP2B² aims to show learners that subjects traditionally seen as “difficult” or “hard” can be loads of fun, while being important to their future success. We connect with learners on various immediate platforms, which are both easily accessible and informative. The HIP2B² website, magazine and online radio are engaging and fun, while the HIP2B² Champions Programme, the iTHINK Challenge and roadshows get learners involved, interacting – and thinking.
