The Project

F. Javier Martín Ortiz & José María Gallego Alonso Colmenares

Our project aims to make a real and/or virtual recreation of the film of the same name. To do so, we have outlined three different methods of representation which, along with being non-exclusive, may be substituted or combined with new ideas:

1. The construction of a small-scale prototype of Fermat's room.
2. The construction of a life-size Fermat's room where the visitor can experience the same feelings as the characters and be faced with the same challenges.
3. The creation of a videogame with questions and answers which reproduce scenarios seen in the film.

In all three cases, the activity will be accompanied by a set of mathematical games and mind puzzles which would complement the challenges that each player has to overcome.

Fermat's Room is a European project within the eTwinning collaboration program between professors and it has contributors from Poland and Romania. It consists of a variety of blogs and websites which provide material and act as a means of communication between the collaborators: bloggimnazjum 1W, Zawiercie, Poland website ; In Romania, the Tehnic de Comunicatii Augustin Maior Cluj-Napoca Colegiul and the Romanian team website

It was also selected for the MediaLab-PradoAssociation's "Playing with Numbers" workshop where the project has further developed.
