CDR Chairamn says Africa can’t progress without science and maths
CDR Career Development Research Chairman of the AIMS-Ghana and South Africa Dr. Wilfred Ndifon says that a Mathematical thinking is necessary for understanding the problems of Africa and developing the institutions to utilize the specific logical solutions to address them.
He said at the opening ceremony of a two week computing in the Applied Mathematical Sciences Workshop for the African Mathematics students at Cape Coast that many of the African problems that impede its development are integrally Mathematical in their dynamics and structure.
However, he expressed worry about the low level of Africans interests show in Science and Mathematics.
Therefore, he called for a higher commitment to the subject promotion and a higher level of awareness to be created among public officials and African Parliamentarians to sustain their interest in Mathematical Sciences.
African Institute for Mathematical Sciences AIMS-Ghana organized a workshop in the partnership with the American Government’s Office of Naval Research (ONR) and International Development Research Centre (IDRC) of the Government of Canada. This workshop is being attended by the thirty Mathematical Students from ten countries.
He explained that the therefore the workshop would focus on the African problems whose solutions needed sophisticated computer software development principles. It would provide a natural medium where such type of thinking that would be expressed.
