We invite you to come and share the wonderful world of mathematics with us!
See extraordinary images and 3D prints, talk to mathematicians, watch fascinating movies, be creative at interactive computer and hands-on stations and create your own mathematical artwork!

A workshop to understand and plan maths communication and maths outreach activities in Africa will be hosted at AIMS-South Africa, Muizenberg near Cape Town.

Parallel to the workshop this interactive exhibition will be held for audiences of all backgrounds from primary school students to researchers. The exhibition will present visualizations, interactive installations, virtual realities, 3D objects and their theoretical background in algebraic geometry and singularity theory in an attracting and understandable manner. Tutors will be around at all times to explain and assist. A unique science & arts experience, entry and tours are free!

As a special section, we also show for the first time in combination with IMAGINARY hands-on modules from the succesful exhibition “Experiencing Mathematics”, which was shown all around the world under the umbrella of UNESCO. More information can be found on the interative web page: www.

Both the exhibition and workshop are organized by the African Institute for Mathematical Sciences - Next Einstein Initiative (AIMS-NEI)IMAGINARY and the Mathematisches Forschungsinstitut Oberwolfach.

Registration for the exhibition can be done online.
