For him, young researchers ChADoC association will participate in presentation seminars for young people and seniors. This is an opportunity to spend a day that is as rewarding as it is entertaining at one of the finest establishments in the Latin Quarter. Collège de France was founded in 1530. Numerous courses and conferences are held there throughout the year by the researchers who work there and are often open to the public. This makes him a the only place of knowledge.

2022 Science Fair program

  • Science Festival at College de France
    October 15

    As every year, the young researchers of the ChADoC association of the Collège de France mobilize within the framework of the Fête de la Science at the Marcelin Berthelot site of the Collège de France.
    On this occasion, on Saturday, October 15, several practical and interactive seminars will be held by laboratory groups on various subjects and topics. These workshops will allow everyone to discover the research and accompanying techniques at the Collège de France.
    Pr. Lab tours will also be offered at De Ten’s lab. These trips will be carried out in 30-minute intervals from 10:00 AM to 4:30 PM.
    A visit to the Champollion 1822 exhibition. This freely open exhibition allows you to discover the material reality of hieroglyphs from several rare pieces, as well as the mystery of their decipherment that has puzzled scholars for centuries! Let’s unlock the mystery of hieroglyphs and the birth of Egyptology.
    This event is free and open to all.
    We offer workshops around neuroscience, molecular biology, quantum physics, and anthropology. It is possible to enter these seminars from 7 to 77 years old, without prior registration.
    * Neuro-control
    Come and explore neuro-control, a human-machine interface for transmitting neural information between two humans, and discover the basics of motor control. Come and talk to students about neuroscience: the discipline that studies the nervous system!
    * DNA: deciphering living things and better understanding diseases
    The study of DNA has enabled great advances in many areas of research. Come and discover how this strange molecule is helping research into neuropathies.
    * Bacteria: this invisible world around us!
    Bacteria are often thought of as a nuisance, but they are essential in producing food or protecting our skin. Let’s take a closer look at these microorganisms in all their forms.
    *Lava lamps
    A colorful chemistry experience! Create your own lava lamp and take it home!
    * Battery
    They are present in most of our devices, although they are part of our daily life, they are often overlooked. Thanks to this seminar, you will finally understand the working principle of batteries and how the development of the latter constitutes one of the research axes of the Institute of Chemistry.
    * Electrochemistry and pH
    Among the quantities that can determine a substance, pH characterizes the acidity of a solution. By mixing different solutions, it is possible to change their pH and highlight its evolution thanks to visual indicators.
    * Fog camera
    Every second, trillions of cosmic particles invisible to the naked eye pass through us without us noticing. However, thanks to a very special tank: a cloud camera, it is possible to observe certain traces of their passage in real time.
    * Laser and Fiber Optics
    Mastering light is one of the greatest achievements of our time. Long used for lighting, today it is an important component in telecommunications, medicine, industry and fundamental research. Come and discover a very special light, the laser, at the heart of quantum physics experiments at the Institute of Physics.
    * Meissner effect: magnetic levitation
    Quantum physics allows us to describe counter-intuitive and very surprising phenomena. Under certain very special conditions, objects called “superconductors” can rise into the air despite their mass. Cooled below -100°C thanks to liquid nitrogen, come and watch the disc move on the magnet!
    * Numerical Physics
    Among the various approaches that we can relate to the natural sciences, a remarkable development is known in recent years, and we are talking about numerical physics. With a computer, it is possible to simulate the behavior of often inaccessible systems where we can control every parameter. Thus, thanks to the screen, we can study their effect and visualize the results of their modifications.
    * Anthropology of life
    There is currently no consensus definition of life. However, human groups, whether in Western scientific laboratories or traditional Mesoamerican societies, have very clear ideas on the subject. Come and discover the work of the Anthropology of Life team, which analyzes people’s perceptions of life across places and times!
    Guided tours
    Cancer research lab
    Collège de France opens the doors of one of its research laboratories to you. This is an opportunity to immerse yourself in the daily life of a researcher and discover this profession in an extraordinary way one-on-one with young researchers! These visits can be accessed by booking via the following link: https://fds2022-college-de-france-visites.eventbrite.fr
    Champollion exhibition
    The Champollion 1822 exhibition will be open exclusively for this occasion. Free and open to all audiences, it offers the visitor a rich journey through the grand foyer of the Collège de France, allowing him to discover not only the material reality of the hieroglyphs on several rare pieces, but also the mystery of their decipherment. Scholars for centuries before trying to shed light on the brilliant personality of Champollion, the unraveling of the hieroglyphs and the birth of Egyptology.
