About Chercheurs à l’école
For the 11th year now, the FNR is organising the ‘Chercheurs à l’école’ get-togethers between local researchers (having obtained or preparing their PhDs) and secondary school students with growing success. 92 classes subscribed for the 2019 edition! Unfortunately, the 2020 edition foreseen for March 2020 had to be cancelled due to the COVID-19 pandemic.
Researchers of all scientific disciplines can describe the pupils their life as a researcher: from their beginnings as a student, to their motivation for one or the other scientific discipline, first steps in their professional lives, career challenges and opportunities. It shouldn’t be a scientific talk- more a personal interaction.
For the teenagers, this is the perfect opportunity to ask them all the questions they have in mind and to receive information on the advantages and also the possible disadvantages of being a scientist.
