Dis­cover the world of sci­en­tific re­search

Stanstead Journal - - NEWS -

For the sec­ond year in a row, the Con­seil du loisir sci­en­tifique de l’es­trie (CLSE) is giv­ing level 4 and level 5 high school stu­dents and col­lege stu­dents the chance to dis­cover dif­fer­ent fields of sci­en­tific re­search with the ac­tiv­ity Osez la recherche. Set up in a ‘speed-dat­ing’ fash­ion, stu­dents get to meet, in small groups, with eight dif­fer­ent re­searchers from dif­fer­ent fields for fif­teen min­utes each.

Be­ing held on De­cem­ber 3rd at the Univer­sité de Sher­brooke, the event will also in­clude sci­en­tific pre­sen­ta­tions on top­ics such as light pol­lu­tion. Dur­ing the lunch hour, vis­i­tors will also be able to visit in­for­ma­tion kiosks such as the one for the Pe­ga­sus project: an air­plane that is propulsed en­tirely by hu­man power. Par­tic­i­pants will fin­ish the day with a se­cret work­shop pre­sented by well-known per­son­al­ity from the chem­istry field of cook­ing!

Stu­dents in­ter­ested in at­tend­ing must fill out the reg­is­tra­tion form be­fore Novem­ber 26th. For more in­for­ma­tion call Marie-pier Bous­quet at 819 565-5062. Stu­dents can see what sci­en­tific re­search is all about at Osez la recherche.
