Public Engagement

Global research has demonstrated the potential of mathematics and science to fuel economic growth. AIMS public engagement programs spread the word about the ways math and science can build a better future for all.

AIMS South Africa is committed to increasing the pipeline of students progressing into secondary and tertiary mathematics education, and to decreasing the failure or drop-out rate of mathematics students at all levels. Through new approaches, the use of technology and updated curricula, AIMS South Africa is focusing on strengthening teacher capacity and reaching as many students as possible through the AIMS Schools Enrichment Programme.

The AIMS House of Science is the coordination hub of AIMS South Africa’s public engagement activities. Delivering public engagement and advancing leadership, knowledge and skills for scientific outreach and science communication for AIMS students and researchers. House of Science also provides mentoring and capacity building to enhance and up-scale AIMS students and researchers in research dissemination and community outreach.

Through events, such as seminars and exhibitions, AIMS South Africa reaches out and engages with a variety of audiences within South Africa. We also hosts monthly public lectures.
