The future digital center for education and training is taking shape at Futuroscope. Its creation was announced with great fanfare by the former Minister of National Education Pap Ndiaye last year. The new institution, named Campus Numeria, must train students and teachers from all over France to new technologies. Its headquarters will be located in the historic Futuroscope pavilion, the building with the famous white ball. This Thursday, May 2, the main players detailed the activities that will be offered on the Campus from September 2025. Discovery classes will be organized for children from kindergarten to 12th grade, accompanied by their teachers.

Virtual reality headsets and robotics

In particular, students will be able to put on a virtual reality headset. “They will be able to visit a factory, an amphitheater or a research centerexplains Bénédicte Robert, rector of the Poitiers academy. It will be interactive, they will also be able to ask questions to the people who work in these places to discover jobs.”.

Interactive tables will also be installed on the Campus and will allow you to learn how the brain works. They will also be able to learn about programming robots. “It allows us to increase the field of discovery compared to what we can have in a classroomshe adds. All this equipment is very expensive, we cannot equip all classrooms this way”. The activities will be adapted to the age of the children

In total, up to 10,000 students from the Poitiers academy will be able to benefit from the equipment each year. Work is due to begin next November, before opening at the start of the 2025 school year. The budget amounts to nearly 12 million eurosfinanced in part by the State and the department of Vienne.
