At the high school in Aragon, the “Science Fair” is a hit

During a recent open house at Pierre d'Aragon High School, students from the European Department of Physics and Chemistry, accompanied by their English teacher, Mrs. Brassens, Fourcade and Chakori, as well as his professor of physics and chemistry, Mr. Le Moine, participated in the first edition of the “Science Fair”. Inspired by the American model, Science Fair (science exhibition in French) is an event where students have the opportunity to present the projects they have worked on during the school year. These projects are materialized through explanatory posters (in English) and models. For this first edition, the topics covered were environment for second-year students, space for first-year students, and artificial intelligence for final-year students.

Parents, students and staff members of the institution came in large numbers to interact with these young scientists in their budding years.

Very ecological first prize

Projects ranged from the design of eco-friendly clothing to the study of airplane wings, including a reflection on the place of artificial intelligence in art. Mrs. Chakori, English teacher and Head of the Terminale class in the European Department of Physics and Chemistry at Pierre d'Aragon High School, expressed her delight at the success of this project: “The Science Fair was a great first for the students, colleagues and me. Although this a type of project very common in the United States, we didn't know if it would have the same success in a high school in France. I'm very pleased to see that the answer is yes.”

Visitors had the opportunity to vote for the best project, with prizes for the winning groups. The first prize went to a group of second-year students for their work on a solar-powered boat that collects microplastics from the sea and macroplastics for recycling. The project of making clothes from milk casein or mushroom mycelium won second place. And finally, a group of first graders won third place for their project on the expansion of the universe.
