“We are delighted to be a sponsor of this award-winning event because numbers are so important these days. Nowadays many things require technology such as communication and technology.

“Right now there is artificial intelligence that requires a lot of math and so on, now we need more people in our company who do math, especially women; that’s why we encourage them to participate in this episode.”

On this day, certificates were given to 380 teachers who have been receiving training on using technology to teach mathematics for two months.

This is a program of courses organized by AIMS in collaboration with the Ministry of Education, the MasterCard Foundation while the courses are provided by the Institute of Technology and the International Computer Driving License (ICDL).

These courses are given to teachers in 14 districts, who have received them so far, more than 5000. It was started to increase the number of students, especially girls studying Science. The goal was to reach 228,000 students but now it has reached 276,323 of which 60% are girls.

Prof. Sam Yala said that the reason why they continue to put effort into this program is to improve the students studying this course because it has been proven that it contributes to development.

He said, “The goal is to increase the number of girls and boys studying Science and Technology because this is a valuable part of the economy of every country, increasing the number of students is to accelerate economic development.”

This is in line with the Director General of the National Office for Primary Education (REB), Dr. Nelson Mbarushimana, who said that if many students attend these courses, they will contribute to the development of the country.

He said, “Mathematics and science are very important because they are the source of knowledge. Now the plan of MINEDUC and REB is to use as much as we can so that students who graduate from high school have enough knowledge in these courses to help them get a job and continue with university.

On the part of the teachers who received awards and trainees, they thanked the various institutions that contributed to their knowledge.
