Because science can seem daunting fast. Because societal and environmental issues are intertwined with it. Planetary Science Sareth
He wants to be a particle accelerator for the students of the department. For twenty years of the association’s existence, Our approach is experimental“specifies Michael LeBlanc, its president. “We suggest that schoolchildren, college students, and high school students start from observing the sky, from questioning their environment, to getting to Technical or existential answers by bots“.
Two-day robotics challenge
To that end, the Society is launching a challenge for these young Sarothas hungry for discovery: Robotics Challenges! Any two days when elementary schools, colleges, and high schools will have to redouble their ingenuity to design a robot. They are working on this with their teachers and supervisors delicate topic For this fifteenth edition, Recycling and waste sorting“Chief says Planetary Science Sareth
. “Have the robot observe, locate, retrieve and transport the waste to the sorting area”.

Beyond simple competition, it is above all cooperation and mutual assistance in the service of a cause which is the driving force for this type of initiative. Carrying out a project to completion, with phosphorous from A to Z, in respect of the members of our association, Advocates of technology at the service of the planet“According to Michael LeBlanc.
The science of participating in a medium-term project
Apart from this challenge, Planète Sciences Sarthe is working on several other events. We want to launch a concept Participatory Science, about light pollution, observing animals especially hedgehogs“says her boss. Here again to revive the stars of curiosity!
