An ultra-connected amphitheater at La Prepa des INP in Toulouse

Cutting-edge technology for modern education

Running since September 2018, after several months of work, this amphitheater reflects the ambition of Toulouse INP to prepare and enrich differently the learning process, with active pedagogies, autonomy and digital technologies.


The Sophie Germain amphitheater is the first structure of this type in France.  


It is an experimentation that should eventually help validate the relevance of architectural and technical choices made for the construction or rehabilitation of similar spaces.


N.B: Sophie Germain is one of the first French mathematician, physicist and philosopher. By this naming, Toulouse INP wants to show its engagement in science for all.


A flexible auditorium with multiple uses

This amphitheater allows several uses

  • Use in classical amphitheater
  • Use in "dynamic" amphitheater including the use of televotors
  • Use in working groups
  • Chance to do videoconferences (opening the perspective of distance learning)
  • Chance to use the screens in cinema-type whether for educational use or as part of the student life.
