14 March 2021 marks the annual celebrating of the International Day of Mathematics. The proclamation of 14 March as the International Day of Mathematics was adopted by the Executive Council of UNESCO at its 205th session. It was adopted by the 40th session of the General Conference of the UNESCO in November 2019. Each year has a unique theme, this year’s: being “Mathematics for a better world”. Registration is free for all high-school learners. Learners can register here.

Africa Teen Geeks has partnered with the University of Johannesburg, Northcliff Rotary Club and UNICEF to celebrate this special day. The objective is to foster growth and ignite passion in our kids for mathematics, not only as a subject but also as a tool to solve problems and establish innovative ideas.

“This aligns with Africa Teen Geeks' mission of inspiring and creating a pipeline of students who excel and are passionate about STEM to ensure that South Africa, and Africa as a whole, produces future scientists, mathematicians and tech innovators and entrepreneurs," said Lindiwe Matlali, Founder and CEO at Africa Teen Geeks.
