Technology is increasingly becoming intertwined with every aspect of our lives. For any community to best leverage on technology, they need to understand how it works and how best to manipulate it to their advantage.
The only way to do that is by having in-depth knowledge of Science, Technology, Engineering and Mathematics (STEM). So in a nut-shell, STEM education is becoming a critical component in leveraging technology to combat the socio-economic challenges within our communities.

That is why Google in partnership with CAMTEL and the MasterCard Foundation in collaboration with the Ministries of Secondary Education and Higher Education together with the African Institute for Mathematical Sciences (AIMS) have launched the Mathematics Teacher Training Program (MTTP) in Cameroon.
This program is aimed at equipping Cameroon students with mathematical skills needed to become problem-solvers and thought leaders. The project’s goal is to build a pipeline of students with excellent mathematical …read more
