While the digital sector is booming with the development of data science and artificial intelligence, there are too few candidates for the positions in these fields. Giving people a taste for science has never been so important.

This new museum proposes to approach the multiple facets of math, computer science and related sciences through a lively, playful and multidisciplinary approach.
