Current Initiative

AIRES – Aquinas Initiative for Religion, Education, and Science

We have gathered scientists, philosophers, theologians and educators to create a platform of active learning in science and religion with multilingual curricula, resources and teacher-training programs.

Since: 2014

Purpose of AIRES

To address the science and religion interface at the level of formative Catholic institutions, for developing an educational project that is simultaneously concept-sensitive and cross-cultural. Our activities vary from institution to institution. However, the core activities that unify the project involve: a multilingual web site with teaching resources and communication tools, a number of local teacher/student training initiatives, and conferences on science, religion and education.
