AIMS IMAGINARY Maths and Science Roadshow, Workshop and Exhibition 2nd Edition AIMS Senegal 2nd – 5th November, 2015.

Concept

Supporting the development of the next generation of mathematicians and scientists in Africa is crucial to the African Institute for Mathematical Sciences. A key mechanism to achieve this is to work with partners in and out of Africa to showcase interactive visual and hands-on maths and science exhibits that are used to inspire learners and to encourage them to pursue maths and science subjects/careers.

Maths and science remains crucial for development and the younger generation has an important role to play in the development of their communities through the application of mathematical science ideas. This is in an effort to enable them address issues related to clean water, energy, sustainable agriculture, health, climate change mitigation and adaptation etc. For this to be achieved, the abilities of learners to think critically and become problem solvers needs to be enhanced.

Following the success of the first AIMS-IMAGINARY Maths and Science Workshop-Exhibition which took place in Cape Town, South Africa in 2014, AIMS is pleased to host the second edition of this event in Senegal.
