Outreach events

I volunteer time towards promoting and popularizing science and technology for children, young adults and among the general public through various events.

  • Planète Sciences Occitanie: I trained the facilitators in astronomy (course notes here).
  • Trophées de la robotique: I staffed a stand where visitors could have a hands-on learning experience in programming and robotics.
  • The Rencontre des Jeunes Mathématiciennes à l'ENAC is a three day event where high school students get the opportunity to learn about math and science in an informal context. I gave a seminar on galaxies (slides here) and a visit of the planetarium to high-school students.
  • I made the gameshow like conversation bot (in French and in English) for the Mastodon social media
  • For the commemoration of the 50th anniversary of the first moonwalk "On the Moon Again", I presented experiments on the phases of the Moon.
  • For the ENAC astronomy club, I gave one talk on dark matter and another one on sismology.
  • Ciel en fête: I was the planetarium presenter for elementary school students.
  • I was a member of the jury for the math tournament "Tournoi français des jeunes mathématiciens et mathématiciennes" in 2017.
  • During the "Semaine de l'Europe 2018", I hosted a workshop on the satellite Sentinel 3.
  • I provided scientific advisory for the MMORPG Khaganat.
  • From 2016 to 2017, I provided educational support during the "Jeunes Talents Mathématiques", a summer camp for middle-school students.
  • Since 2016, I have held a star-gazing stand at the "Nuit des étoiles" every year.
  • I led guided tours of the Geneva Astronomical Observatory.
