Opening of the Terra Numerica@Sophia space
1 place Bermond
TerraNumerica@Sophia is a building of just over 500 square meters dedicated to the dissemination of digital science culture (foundations, applications, issues...), provided by the city of Valbonne Sophia Antipolis. It is a precursor to the future Cité du Numérique planned for 2025 in Sophia Antipolis. The TerraNumerica@Sophia space is open to the general public and to schoolchildren for class visits, training courses, family visits or visits with friends.
Terra Numerica is a large-scale, federative project, led by the CNRS, Inria and Université Côte d'Azur, bringing together the French Ministry of Education and a range of partners in the digital sciences (research laboratories, associations and scientific mediation projects) with the aim of creating an original, attractive and unique system for disseminating and sharing information between digital actors. This system includes various Partner Spaces throughout the Côte d'Azur.
The Terra Numerica project is led by a group of members who all have expertise in scientific mediation, the creation of experiments and interactive devices, research in educational sciences, the organization of events, communication, training
Terra Numerica mainly works for the general public, schoolchildren and teachers by offering more than twenty workshops and conferences: games in graphs, binary and magic, life-size algorithms, the Web surfer game, etc. And new original workshops to discover on the day: a model of the digital city, a spherical screen, the Tsunami Lab workshop, Escape Game Combinatoire, and many others.
