About FHSST:
The FHSST project aims to provide free science and mathematics
textbooks for Grades 10-12 to all South African learners. Started
in 2002 by young South African scientists, one of the primary aims
of the project is to develop a complete set of high school science
textbooks, FREE of authors', publishers' and editors' royalties in
line with the new South African curriculum. This is accomplished
through contributions by volunteers. Physics, Chemistry and
Mathematics books are currently being worked on, with Computer
Literacy and Biology in the pipe-line.
