Cinema As A Vector For Science Dissemination

The African Institute for Mathematical Sciences, AIMS-Cameroon and “Making Science The Star” recently joined forces in organizing an exciting event aimed at exploring the cinema as a vector for spreading the message of Science in a way that projects the importance of Science in the African community.

Hosted on Thursday, December 10, 2020, at the AIMS-Cameroon Crystal Gardens premises, the event themed: “Science and You” brought together various talents including mathematicians, filmmakers, actors, researchers, and industry experts who rallied in support of the initiative that was brought together by the AIMS-Cameroon Research Center led by Dr. Jean-Daniel Djida, Dr. Stephane Kenmoe of “Making Science The Star”, and the AIMS-Cameroon Industry Initiative.

The event was marked by a Panel Discussion on the topic “The Cinema as a vector for science dissemination and Science in the Industry” where panelists explored some of the facets of scientific storytelling to enhance Science Communication and the barriers to the employment of Mathematics graduates in non-academic institutions.
