DNA, research, genetics, cells, laboratory... Our researchers welcomed you to discover the world of research and how it works. Throughout the day, workshops, conferences, an exhibition and a career forum have allowed the public, including young people, to immerse themselves in science.
Practical and fun workshops for all audiences
What is DNA, what is a cell? What do they look like, how can we see and observe them? Our workshops gathered children and adults.
- Workshops on extracting DNA from fruits, at 2, 3 and 4 pm. Duration: about 45 minutes
- Workshops to observe cells under the microscope, continuously from 2 to 6 pm
- Entering and working in an experimental laboratory (L2): how to dress, what precautions to take? Continuous from 2 to 2:30 pm, from 1 to 3:30 pm and from 4 to 4:30 pm
Careers forum: the research professions
The jobs in science and research are very diverse and cover many fields, from science and medicine to business development and company creation. Engineers, researchers, doctors, clinical research technicians, business developers, grant officers, scientific communication officers...you came and met the people who contribute to research to ask them questions about their jobs, their training and their prospects.
Interactive thematic conferences
