Science Week, sharing knowledge from CP to 3eme

The French Ministry of Higher Education and Research organizes the annual “Fête de la Science”. The aim of this national event is to promote science to the general public. It enables to address scientific issues free of charge, in direct contact with all the concerned.

LFIDD ran its own Science Week, from April 15 to 19, 2024, to inspire younger students, but also to enable all students to share their scientific knowledge with others. This project, led by secondary school science teachers, involved all classes, from CP to3ème.

The middle school classes were asked to look again at all the experiments carried out since the beginning of the year, in order to choose, with their teacher, those to be reproduced with younger pupils.

This is how the schoolchildren came up with :

  • in physics,  experiments on “Chemical mixtures and reactions with water” for CE1/CE2 and “Chemical reactions (effervescence and precipitation) and electricity” for CM1/CM2;
  • in technology, an Escape Game entitled “Save Crystal’s Elephant” for CM1/CM2;
  • in SVT, small experiments in biology and geology for pupils from CE1 to CM2, experiments on “Microscopie optique” for CM1/CM2 or “The Biodiversity” exploring the species present in the school for CE1/CE2.

Primary school pupils were able to witness the various experiments, but they too were able to share their knowledge :

  • CE1 B students proposed an activity on matter, movement and energy entitled “Lights or forces” (“Lights or forces”).
  • CE2 A and CE2 B students have created quizzes using electrical circuits.

To include parents in this collective scientific process, they were invited to a Science Evening on Wednesday April 17 from 5:30 to 7pm, during which they were able to attend a reading of scientific works by secondary school students, as well as take part in scientific workshops.

We invite you to take a look back at these beautiful encounters.
