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

“We are pleased to bring the AIMS model to Tanzania. We bring together top global scholars in math and science to teach and research with Africa’s brightest students”. Our graduates then use these skills to tackle African development issues ranging from disease prevention to environmental degradation, education and poverty.
AIMS graduates have a broad-based training and are talented problem solvers and innovators, which is just what this continent needs.”
