Mineral & Gem is pleased to present its Educational Days: covering a wide range of disciplines relative to Earth Sciences (such as Prehistory, Gold-washing and Geology), these Educational Days are suitable for students from cycles 1 to 3.
They will take place on the 26th and the 27th of June, and will consist of 2 semi-days – one of which will be dedicated to the activities mentioned above, and the other which will be animated by an educational-visit-tour throughout the whole exhibition. Adapted to the pupil’s course cycle, this tour will be the opportunity for each and every one to discover the event in a playful way. For each group touring, a student from our partner schools l’Ecole et Observatoire des Sciences de la Terre de Strasbourg, l’Institut Polytechnique LaSalle Beauvais, l’Ecole Nationale Supérieure de Nancy as well as l’Institut National de Gemmologie de Lyon, will ensure a personalized and educational support throughout animation and comments.By the end of the day, each child will receive a bag with several minerals inside, a gift specially prepared by our partner MINERAMA.
