Travail de Candidature

By bridging the gap between the classroom and the research bench, the Scienteens Lab is a suitable place for teachers to realize their Travail de Candidature.



In order to strengthen the practical experience of the high-school teachers, it is possible to make a “Décharge” at the Scienteens Lab. During this time the teachers supervise workshops together with scientists and support the development of new experiments. If you are interested in science teaching and would like to participate in our team do not hesitate to contact us.
