  • Description


  • The science of motion! - For all!

  • Physical activity is essential to preserve health. But to what extent is it important? What happens when the body is moving? What can we do to move more? It is an invitation to spring into action to answer these questions and many others!



  • All alike, all different! - Primary cycle 3 and secondary!

  • Human diversity is impressive! Hair, skin, facial features, but also personality and interests: each of us is unique. Yet, we all belong to the same species, Homo sapiens, and are, genetically speaking, very similar to each other.

    In addition to learning about DNA, the students will discover the cognitive processes leading to the construction of stereotypes and prejudice. They will also carry out a laboratory experiment that illustrates the impacts of social relationships and stress on mental and global health.


  • My brilliant brain! - For all!

  • Discover every aspect of your brain and find out just how brilliant it is!

    Through an amusing game-quiz and surprising manipulations, you will gain a better understanding of the functions of your brain. Perception, attention, memory, and communication are particularly dealt with.


    Cerveau

  • Playing with microorganisms! - For all!

  • We often think that all microorganisms are bad and cause disease... but only a small percentage of them are pathogenic. Most are harmless and some of them even help us produce food! Yum!

    Viruses, bacteria, yeasts and molds, algae, protozoa: these microorganisms will no longer hold any secrets for these budding young scientists!
