Popularizing science

Savanturiers

At the begining of 2017 school year, I accepted to take part to the Savanturiers program. This program gathers teachers in schools and high schools and researchers around a project, chosen by pupils. Through the project, pupils will discover some aspects of science, with the help of their teacher and of the researcher (usually from far away and on an intermittent basis). I'm involved in a project with elementary school pupils, who chose to work on biodiversity spaces in cities. The project is ongoing and our exchanges appear on a blog, along with the ones of other schools (it is all in French).

 

Due to my PhD subject, I have been participating to some popularization activities. For some of them, I have prepared associated communication mediums. They are available below, free to use as long as their origin is mentioned.

Conferences / Public exhanges

Young explorers, Paris Zoological Park: a 30min to 1 hour exchange with park visitors on a subject, which I took part too in april 2016 and april 2017, talking abount my PhD subjects, pollinators in domestic gardens.

Insectes in the garden, House for birds and trees, Verrières-le-Buisson, mai 2017.

Results disssemination

Following my publication using Spipoll dataset in Île-de-France, I wrote a short post (in French) to share results with the Spipoll community.

Posters

Posters used during several forums on the Saclay Plateau (in French): about gardens (#2) and about pollination (#3), available upon request (large size).

SPIPOLL collection sheets

SPIPOLL is a citizen science program of the National Museum for Natural History and the OPIE. Participation to this program means taking pictures of all insects coming to a given flower during 20 minutes and sending them to the SPIPOLL website after identification. This set of 20 minutes is a collection. Each sheet represents one collection done on the Saclay Plateau by participants (in French):
