FROM PAST SCHOLARS TO INNOVATORS OF TOMORROW
IMPMS AT A GLANCE
A Bit of Background
Here at IMPMS, we know that sometimes all it takes to change the world is a little support. Since our founding in 2001, we have been determined to make an impact. The goal of this organization is to take motivation and knowledge from the past innovators and create the innovators of tomorrow.
The Vision and Goals of IMPMS
Goal and Objectives of IMPMS:
Institute of Medieval and Post Medieval Studies was established in 2001, incorporated in 2009 and obtained a tax-exempt status in 2012. Initially, the main goal of the Institute of Medieval & Post-Medieval Studies (IMPMS) is to help generate a climate of mutual understanding and respect between Muslims and people of other faiths and cultures. In this way, we aim to correct the concept of dark ages when Muslim scholars and scientist enlightened the world with their original scientific contribution and quell what has been labeled as a clash between Islamic and Western civilizations. In pursuit of this goal, IMPMS seeks to reach out to people of all faiths with information about the great contributions and contributors of the Islamic world in many fields of science and arts. This is accomplished by making presentation in national and international conferences, circulating newsletters and developing website.
In 2018, IMPMS collaborated with DiscoverSTEM. This organization prepare young students to develop critical and Analytical skills, Problem Solving and Creativity. This will prepare them for gaining admission in prestigious college. The organization also mentor students to think like an Innovator, identify world's problems and innovate patent-able STEM solutions to these problems. The goal of this organization is to take motivation and knowledge from the past innovators and create the innovators of tomorrow. We are an organization driven by progressive ideas, bold actions, and a strong foundation of support.
IMPMS knows that sometimes all it takes to change the world is a little support. Since our founding, we have been determined to make an impact.
Dealing with the challenges of today requires problem-solvers who bring different perspectives and are willing to take risks. IMPMS emerged out of a pursuit to inspire and support the community, and a desire for actions to speak louder than words.

IBN AL-HAYTHAM (ALHAZEN) (965 AD-1040)
Al-Haytham was known for his knowledge of applied mathematics. He is known as the father of modern optics. He played a major role in the information we know about optics and visual perception. His most influential work was "The Book of Optics." He also wrote about philosophy, theology, and medicine. He was the first to explain that vision occurs when light reflects from an object and then passes to one's eyes.
