Outreach : Science popularization & sensibilisation

Action Kid Campus
This action was initiated by Frank Lafont (CMPI Team, pedagogical coordinator) in 2006. It allows schoolchildren of 9-10 years old to spend half a day on the Pasteur campus to visit the Museum, have a training on hygiene and a workshop animated by scientific personal of the campus.

Ten years the CMPI Team (Frank Lafont) intiatied the Scientist Apprentice action that has engaged now  many Teams from the CIIL in association with the Tree of Knowledges.

Since 2018 the CMPI team participates to the Foundation Schlumberger DECLICS program that aims at developing the dialogue between scientists and High Schoolchildren. Scientists go to meet the Schoolchildren in their classes and after a short overview of the activity of the lab a speed dating is organized allowing Schoolchildren to know better the several research professions.


Scientist Apprentices
A binomial of 14 and 16 years-old Junior high and high schoolchildren are hosted for 8 half-days directly in the lab mentored by PhDs and senior scientists to perform a research project that will be presented during a mini-symposium at the end of the internship.  

Journalist Apprentices
A group of Junior high and high schoolchildren follow their colleagues during their Scientist apprentice internship and realize a video report on what  these latter have experienced when hosted in the Research Lab.
