Ateliers jeune public

En collaboration avec le Service de promotion des sciences de l’EPFL nous proposons plusieurs activités mathématiques et participons à différentes manifestations scientifiques

Tout au long de l’année, l’EPFL et le Service de promotion des sciences (SPS)   organisent des manifestations scientifiques pour les jeunes de 7 ans à 16 ans, manifestations auxquelles participent l’Institut et la Section de Mathématiques.
