and I want to become a Declics Ambassador by participating to the scientific speed-meeting.
Ambassadors, you don’t have anything to prepare, just to be there on D day, ready to exchange!
We advise you to bring something tangible with you (a sample tube, pictures…) to help launch the discussion. You will be given an advice sheet before the meeting.
You can be an Ambassador even if you don’t speak French!
High school students are not fluent English speakers, but still, they speak English. We know that a speed-meeting can work perfectly with up to a third of English speaking scientists.
Declics Ambassadors spend half a day in a high school for a speed meeting that lasts one hour and a half. They successively meet seven groups of five students for 12 minutes during which they discuss their research topic, how they build knowledge, the path they followed to be here today…
You don’t have to prepare a talk, only to exchange directly and spontaneously with the students.
In 2018, most Declics took place the same week, between the 19th November and the 21th of December. However some high schools were not available on said week and meetings there may take place on other dates. The detailed list is kept up to date on the above registration form.
Just as the dates, the precise places of the meetings will be kept up to date on this website. You can use the map bellow to locate them.
Want to get involved? Register by picking up a high school either:
