Violeta and Krista are spending February in beautiful Lyon, France, working with ICAP  (Innovation Conception et Accompagnement pour la Pedagogie) at the University Lyon 1. The ARTEMiS team is collaborating with ICAP on 3D interactive visualizations, such as Unity-based games, for science education. Pictured below are (from left to right) 3D artist Olivier Rastello, engineer Tom Riviere, and 3D artist Frederic Urien in one of ICAP’s editing suites. See the Anatomie 3D website for some amazing 3D visualizations, which ICAP’s artists have created together with science professor Dr. Patrice Thiriet.

The weather in Lyon is cold this winter – see below the frozen fountain at Place des Terreaux! – but the welcome for ARTEMiS is warm!

We especially need imagination in science. It is not all mathematics, nor all logic, but it is somewhat beauty and poetry.
