AISR exhibited its educational technology solutions at the British Education Training and Technology (BETT London Excel) Show in January 2018. It has been a great show, buzzing atmosphere, powerful conversations into what the future of the education holds. AISR showcased its virtual reality (VR) laboratory, educational augmented reality (AR) posters and its STEM mobile game. We believe in creating a better future by transforming education.

AISR in partnership with STEM Aware and Ulster University carried out the CSI Connected Classroom project as part of the Science Festival Northern Ireland. The focus of our project was to involve students in an international science investigation, where they had to carry out a series of experiments such as code breaking, fingerprint analysis and further scientific analysis. AISR's CEO, Dr Terry McIvor was mentoring the Indian students at HHSIB-SHSS Edneer school in India and Roisin Crawford and Maria McGilloway were mentoring the students at St. Mary's School in Derry-Londonderry in order to eliminate suspicious characters and investigate the crime.

The Academy opened its Applied Mathematics Hub! We are holding workshops for local schools to develop mathematical thinking and problem solving skills. We are reaching out to to schools in order to run workshops and making mathematics fun through 3D printing, the use of izak9 cubes and interactive projects. We will be partnering with local universities to measure the impact of how AISR's Application of Mathematics Hub programme has on the mathematical skills improvement in our schools.
