Public Engagement: Education
AIMS Tanzania is supporting mathematics and science education at primary and secondary school levels by developing a masterplan for an Educational Improvement Initiative for the Mtwara region in the south east of Tanzania. The project has been commissioned by BG Tanzania in consultation with the Mtwara Regional Secretariat and is being undertaken by a team of national and international experts from the AIMS Network and its partners. The plan includes the establishment new regional Centre of Excellence for Science, Mathematics and English Education and a proposal for an innovative portfolio of part-time in-station education qualifications.
Information about Education and Teacher Training programmes across the AIMS Network can be found here: NEI Teachers’ Traning.
“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.”
