iMuSciCA is an educational project that intends to improve the acquisition of scientific skills in secondary-level education. iMuSciCA offers new learning methods using innovative "discovery" technologies—both personalized and collaborative—in order to make certain scientific subjects, in particular math and physics, more appealing. IRCAM brings its skills in virtual instrument making via Modalys, giving life to 3D instruments created by students. Some of these instruments feature parameters that can be tested and modified (geometry, material, etc.) in real-time.
The iMuSciCA environment, implemented through a collaboration among different industrial and educational partners, will be tested and assessed during a pilot program with a large number of students and teachers in three European countries: Belgium, France, and Greece.
