MIDDLE-SCHOOL STUDENTS FROM THE IMAGINE-FRANCE PROJECT WERE IN THE ACADEMIC FINALS OF THE CGÉNIAL COMPETITION 2023
The C Génial competition is a national science contest for middle-school students. With the help of their teachers, students can present an innovative project in a wide range of disciplines, including physics, chemistry, mathematics, technology, life and earth sciences, etc. This teamwork enables them to ask questions, follow a scientific approach, carry out experiments and present their project to a panel of judges.
Every year, the educational authorities of the Bordeaux region organize the final of the C Génial competition at CEA CESTA (Commissariat à l’énergie atomique / Centre d’études scientifiques et techniques d’Aquitaine) in Le Barp. For this 16th edition, which took place on April 6, 2023, 12 middle schools took part, presenting their projects.
The Collège Aliénor d’Aquitaine in Salles was among the academic finalists with its project “Imagine : meeting the diversity of human beings”. Unfortunately, they didn’t win, so they did not take part in the final at the Musée de l’Air et de l’Espace in Paris. First regional prize went to Collège Yvon-Delbos in Montignac for its project “CO2 : je t’aime, moi non plus”.
After the presentation of the 12 projects, and while awaiting the jury’s results, the young students attended a lecture by Dr. Gilles Boeuf, biologist and professor at Pierre-et-Marie-Curie University, Sorbonne Université: “The Human Beings in Biodiversity”.
