IMAGINARY is a platform for open and interactive mathematics. It features a variety of content that can be used in schools, at home, in museums, at exhibitions or for events and media activities. The main contents of IMAGINARY are its interactive programs and its picture galleries. The platform allows an easy integration of new content, for example of additional mathematical subjects or exhibitions. One main goal of IMAGINARY is to enable you, the community, to participate and to get involved with your own ideas. The core idea is that exhibits are created within the community and exhibitions are organized independently. This concept and the platform grew from our initial IMAGINARY exhibition, which started in 2008 and has since then been shown in more than 140 cities all around the world. Its huge success and its growing community led to the creation of this platform! IMAGINARY is a non-profit organisation for interactive and open mathematics (IMAGINARY gGmbH). It was initiated at the Mathematisches Forschungsinstitut Oberwolfach (MFO), an institute of the Leibniz Association. The MFO is a shareholder of IMAGINARY.

Heidelberg Laureate Forum

Deadline for applications to the Heidelberg Laureate Forum is approaching! Apply until this Friday, February 14, 2020!

And remember to save the date for the 8th HLF: September 20-25, 2020! #HLF20

Young researchers in computer science and mathematics from all over the world can apply for one of the 200 coveted spots to participate in the Heidelberg Laureate Forum (HLF), an annual networking event. The HLF offers all accepted young researchers the great opportunity to personally interact with the laureates of the most prestigious prizes in the fields of mathematics and computer science. For one week, the recipients of the Abel Prize, the ACM A.M. Turing Award, the ACM Prize in Computing, the Fields Medal, and the Nevanlinna Prize engage in a cross-generational scientific dialogue with young researchers in Heidelberg, Germany.

The last week of applications for #HLF20 has started!

If you haven't already, please apply here https://bit.ly/2GWgrco

Update: The image changed, now you see the Dune Ash exhibit, which is of course also available at the IMAGINARY platform:
https://imaginary.org/program/dune-ash
Dune Ash is an interactive simulation of a volcano eruption in Europe. You can place a volcano, add a wind field and explore the ash cloud dispersing in time.

This is the Crystal Flight Exhibit at the MiMa, Museum für Mineralien und Mathematik Oberwolfach.
You can fly through a quartz, fluorite, or diamond crystal. Steer through the crystal structures using your finger on a touchscreen, also in (anaglyph) 3D.
https://imaginary.org/program/crystal-flight
You can download the software from the IMAGINARY platform, and there is also a mobile version available for iPhone and iPad.

Wir haben auch zwischen den Jahren für euch geöffnet:
vom 26. - 30. Dezember täglich von 11 bis 16 Uhr 😊
Am 24., 25. und 31. Dezember haben wir geschlossen.

Come to the exhibition in Valdivia, Chile, open until November 28!
https://imaginary.org/event/exposicion-retratos-de-matematicas
The main attraction is the picture exposition called “Retratos de Matemáticas”, which contains pictures of 23 women mathematician from Europe and Latin America. This exposition has the goal of changing stereotypes, and to promote mathematics especially to young women.

The exhibition will be accompanied by additional mathematical pictures and sculptures, a collection of games and interactive demonstrations of mathematical concepts, a round table and playful activities for kids.

This event is founded by the research project “Anillo Matemáticas y Género”, and it will take place on the locations of the research center “Centro de Estudios Científicos” in the city of Valdivia, Chile.

IMAGINARY is leading partner of the Erasmus+ project Mathina:
https://imaginary.org/project/mathina
The final output of the project will be an interactive collection of stories for different age groups. Stories, tales, puzzles and riddles in cryptography, geometry, symmetry, logic and much more!
Mathina can be used by parents to play with their kids, by teachers as a didactical tool or directly by young learners eager to discover more maths.
Our partners for this project are Atractor - Matemática Interactiva (PT), Bragi Interactive Vizualne Komunikacije (SI), Curvilinea Società Cooperativa (IT), and Experience Workshop / ÉlményMűhely (FI).

80 years CNRS

Happy 80th Birthday, CNRS !
The French National Centre for Scientific Research (CNRS) is among the world's leading research institutions. Excellence, freedom of research, interdisciplinarity, and knowledge transfer are just some of the organisation’s values.
We prepared a small widget to celebrate 80 years of CNRS. Click the link to play with an algebraic surface representing the number 80. There are 5 parameters you can change via sliders, you can also turn the surface by dragging or even change the formula and let the widget draw your own creation!
Have fun, share and celebrate! 🥳

Happy birthday! The number 80 as an algebraic surface, the zero set of a polynomial. Can you modify it?

http://www.cck.gob.ar/eventos/nudos-salvajes-de-jean-michel-othoniel_3368

La exhibición Nudos salvajes reúne más de veinte esculturas realizadas por Jean-Michel Othoniel entre 2009 y 2019: construcciones dinámicas suspendidas en el aire desafían la gravedad y ponen en tensión la monumentalidad de las figuras con la fragilidad de su material. Tenés tiempo de visitarla hasta el 10 de noviembre. @othoniel_studio

De miércoles a domingos y feriados, de 13 a 20h. Salas 702, 703 y 704, 7mo piso

Check out the educational board game GANITA!
https://imaginary.org/de/hands-on/ganita
It was created with the lower level of secondary school in mind. Of course, it can also be played with family and friends at home.
So far, the game is available in German, translations into other languages are planned for the future.
Authors of the game are Carla Cederbaum and Anja Fetzer.

Jamming with my software. Ok, this is perhaps a little geeky:-) We are opening the exhibition LaLaLab in collaboration with @imaginary.exhibition . The exhibition is about the relation of Mathematics and Music. Here is a little jam I did yesterday in relation to Indian Raga scales. :-) Not to be taken too seriously.

IMAGINARY - open mathematics

IMAGINARY creates and distributes interactive exhibits that communicate modern mathematics to the general public. As a non profit organization we promote mathematical education and knowledge worldwide by offering all content under an open license on our website imaginary.org. We empower people to organize local exhibitions and hence carry modern mathematics to every corner on earth. Our philosophy and international network of math enthusiasts help us to constantly develop our content, to produce new exhibits and to establish IMAGINARY as think tank for modern mathematics communication. Started as project at the Mathematisches Forschungsinstitut Oberwolfach in 2008 and spun-off in 2016 with support of the Leibniz Association, we have inspired millions of visitors in more than 50 countries with our exhibits ever since.
