AIMS hosts International Maths Olympiad Camp

From 7 to 12 April 2024, the AIMS South Africa was proud to host the annual International Maths Olympiad (IMO) Camp in South Africa. The camp, organised by the South African Maths Foundation (SAMF), was facilitated by Najwa Chellan from the AIMS Schools Enrichment Centre (AIMSSEC), who played a crucial role in its success. Fifteen talented students from Grades 8 to 12, representing the Western Cape, Eastern Cape, Free State, and Gauteng, gathered at AIMS for a week dedicated to mastering Algebra, Combinatorics, Geometry, and Number Theory.

Phil Labuschagne, the SAMF lead at the camp, challenged these young mathematicians to reach new heights of academic excellence. His guidance helped the participants refine their problem-solving skills and better tackle the complex questions typical of both African and international Maths Olympiads. By the end of the camp, the participants were selected into two teams: one set to represent South Africa at the forthcoming International Mathematics Olympiad in the UK from 11 to 22 July 2024, and another for the Pan-African Mathematics Olympiad (PAMO), to be hosted in South Africa from 10 to 20 August 2024.

AIMSSEC is extremely honoured and privileged to be associated with this group of talented youngsters, who we have no doubt will make South Africa extremely proud! We are rooting for you and wish all the learners and facilitators the very best outcome!
