During year one of the Simple project, we found out that in the schools of our Swedish and Dutch partners, the work environment is a priority (walls decorated by students, comfortable areas for students to relax and socialise, bright colours in corridors and classrooms…). We noticed that students there feel at home in their schools. This led us to ask the Art class in our school to draft painting projects for a science classroom. The best project was then selected and the whole art class painted it on one of the science classroom walls.Here is the result on the following pictures. (an English classroom will be decorated next school year).
In May, our science students visited the diatonic quarry located in Saint Bauzile, Ardèche. This site is exceptional, since only two quarries of this type exist in Europe. Continue reading “On site science – FRANCE”
Here is the exhibition of the work led by the French students for the international science fair in Empoli. The posters have been displayed in the school library for a few weeks (until the end of the school year). In September, the posters will be pinned in the science classrooms. Pointing out the quality of the students’ work aims at inspiring their classmates, as well as encouraging them to create a motivating work environment.

Every year in France, the science event “Fête de la Science” is organised all over the territory. Research departments open their doors to visitors and especially to students. This year, thanks to the Erasmus+ project SIMPLE, our last science level students were able to visit some laboratories in Grenoble. Continue reading “On site science at Grenoble (France)”
