A mathematical camp for high school girls in an exceptional setting close to the Calanques, in Marseille

As part of the year of mathematics 2019-2020, the Institute of Mathematics of Marseille (I2M) organized a week of intensive school dedicated to mathematics for a score of high school girls (first class, possibly second and final) of the academy of Aix-Marseille during the period of the school holidays of All Saints, Monday 28 October to Friday, November 1, 2019.

This project is carried out jointly with the regional pedagogical unit of the Aix-Marseille Academy.

This week was intended to participate in the dissemination of culture and the scientific spirit while fighting against the disaffection of women for this theme.

It took place in the prestigious Centre International de Rencontres Mathematiques (CIRM) on the Luminy campus in Marseille.

The stay was entirely supported by the organizers.

The "Cigales" workshop was held at the CIRM
from Monday, October 28 to Friday, November 1, 2019
