Outreach in particle physics

I take part in various outreach activities for particle physics: The Passport for the two infinities, a book for high school teachers and students.
  • The popular science journal Elémentaire, which aims at explaining goals and questions of the physics of the elementary constituents of matter.
  •  

    Centre for Popularisation of Knowldege

    I take part in the activities of the Centre for Popularisation of Knowledege (Université Paris-Sud) on a regular basis, in particular in the following projects :

    • The exoplanets (2014)
      An exhibition for Cité des Sciences et de l'Industrie.
    • Of Water and Men (2013)
      An exhibition of 10 pannels for the House for environment, sciences and sustainable development, Saint-Quentin-en-Yvelines.
    • The planets along the river Yvette (2009)
      A permanent exhibition of 10 pannels between Orsay and Gif/Yvette describing astronomy, astrophysics and cosmoloy for the general public.
    • The ABC of astronomy (2008)
      An exhibition exhibition of 26 pannels describing astronomy, astrophysics and cosmology for the general public.
    • If the Sun were a ball (2006)
      An exhibition of 10 pannels showing the solar system at the scale of the Orsay campus.
    • The ABC of physics (2005)
      A travelling exhibition of 26 pannels explaining physics to the general public though examples taken from everyday life.
