IMAGINARY is part of Science Year 2014!
24 mar. 2014

How we get our information, how we live and how we communicate - all this has changed radically over the past two decades. Digital technologies play an important role in our everyday lives and provide us with a whole range of new options. Some call it a digital revolution that is matched in scale only by the invention of the printing press. Science Year 2014 “The Digital Society” shows how research can produce new solutions to promote this development and focuses on the impact of the digital revolution.
One of the ways IMAGINARY communicates science is via our digital platform. Exhibitions are developed together with the users, who are society, of course. We also provide space for digital exhibits, exchange of knowledge and information. For all intents and purposes IMAGINARY is ‘science communication 2.0’!
There will be numerous events to encourage the public-scientific communication. Our ‘Mathematics of Planet Earth’ exhibition shown at the German Museum of Technology (Deutsches Technikmuseum) in Berlin is one of them. It opens this week on Thursday, March 27th, and will stay open until June 30th.

Today, February 7th 2018, is called e-day, because e is approximately 2.718, and this date is written 2/7/18 in some parts of the world.

We can even find your name within the digits of e, along with the complete works of William Shakespeare, the ending of Game of Thrones (spoiler alert), the full text of the Wikipedia from the year 2030 or what you’ll have tomorrow for breakfast…Lire la suite
