Anne-Marie's father, a world renowned expert and government adviser, Professor Chris Imafidon, said, "When it comes to Mathematics, every child is a genius, if the subject and indeed every other subject is learned with the appropriate tools, techniques and technology. My children and students' achievements in learning come from nurturing their passion, and pure gamification of every concept. The British Museum deserves real congratulations for this historic progress in stimulating the interest of the next generation." Professor Imafidon, who now chairs the ExcellenceinEducation.org.uk programmes, which are known for supporting inner-city pupils, was one of the VIP guests at a pre-opening reception of the Mathematical spectacular display. Adding that, "Mathematics is too important to be left to Mathematicians alone - so it's apt that the museum is playing a vital role."
The Imafidon family became Britain's Brainiest family in 2007 after all five children set various world records in intellectual and scientific achievements. The Mathematics gallery was designed by Dame Zaha Hadid, a mathematics graduate and Architect. Dr Anne-Marie Imafidon who was recently rated by the Guardian as one of the top 10 women in technology, will speak at a forthcoming conference for Universities leaders co-hosted by Oxford and Cambridge Universities (https://www.eventbrite.co.uk/e/success-in-research-education-conference-series-tickets-29337140176?aff=erelexpmlt).
