AIMS Schools Enrichment Centre (AIMSSEC)

The African Institute for Mathematical Sciences (AIMS) is Africa’s first network of centres of excellence in mathematical sciences.

AIMS is committed to building the pipeline of students progressing to secondary and tertiary mathematics and science education, and to decrease the failure and drop-out rate of mathematics students at all levels. Through innovative pedagogical approaches, the use of technology, and continually updated curricula, AIMS is focusing on strengthening the mathematics teacher capacity and reaching as many students in Africa as possible.
