The American Indian Math & Science Society (AIMSS) is designed to provide enrichment activities for middle school and high school (7th, 8th and 9th grade) American Indian students from rural Oklahoma schools. AIMSS goal is to address the disparity in the numbers between between white and American Indian students in math and sciences disiplines.
The project incorporates not only enrichment activities, but also role models that are American Indian. The plan also strives to incorporate Indian cultural values into the activities. Schools were chosen based on the availability of American Indian teachers or others who could serve as advisors for the project. These teachers were chosen because they had reputations as dedicated teachers but who also were willing to commit time and effort to this cause.
