TDA Tech Series®

What is the TDA Tech Series®?

The value The Dow Academy is bringing to basic education is the integration and development of a technical, vocational and life skills programme alongside the long established and understood academic programme currently offered in basic education institutions. We offer the skills development programmes under our TDA Tech Series® programming.

Setswana Folk Tales

Embark on an enchanting journey into the heart of Setswana storytelling with Setswana Folk Tales, a meticulously crafted series by The Dow Academy’s Setswana department. These immersive tales, narrated by the captivating voices of the TDA Diamonds, transport you to a world filled with mythical creatures, heroic feats, and timeless wisdom. Celebrating the rich oral tradition of Setswana culture, this extraordinary collection preserves and shares the essence of its heritage.

Artist in Residence

Professional Artists introduce students to a variety of art forms, at one of the The Dow Academy campuses through producing a commissioned art piece for the school. So far the programme has hosted a fine artist who produced a mural, a traditional Setswana master potter who made large clay pots resident at each campus. Our first 2021 artist is a master weaver who will be making traditional setswana grass baskets characteristic of the Ngamiland area.
