Howard University School of Mathematics together with Science & Sheppard Education & Training Academy are coming together to launch the Maths & Science Improvement Project. Lower uptake of mathematics and science in SA and dismal performance at our schools present the developmental strain to SA development. Although education policy and other government initiatives (Sci-Bono) are aimed at improving uptake and performance, continued lower performance and uptake in many marginalized communities requires long term intervention and greater support. Without this, the situation will negatively impact on SA developmental goals (as envisaged in NDP etc.) Develop a creative and long term campaign which utilizes US partners’ visit to inspire ‘whole of society approach’ to raise funds for a mathematics and science uptake project.
