The team from the Isnelle Amelin vocational high school in Sainte-Marie wins the Albioma prize in the CGénial scientific competition for its project “A hair is like a sponge: How can a hair absorb oil from boats anchored in the port? ‘.

The jury rewards this project for “its highly original subject with a real ecological issue, linking experiments and their professional practices”. The winners receive a site visit.

“This day was an opportunity to highlight the strong commitment of the students, their teachers, around a project which led them to the national final” underlines Frédéric Restagno, president of the scientific committee of the CGénial Competition.

“It is important that they have the feedback of a jury of professionals who evaluate their scientific approach.”

“The CGénial Competition allows, through the conduct of a project, and thanks to various partnerships, to consider the notions seen in class from a different angle, and, why not, to glimpse the practice of science as a project professional”, continues Frédéric Restagno.,

The prizes offered by partner companies and institutions will allow the winners to participate in the European scientific competition EUCYS and to discover the functioning of several industrial and research sites.

– Evaluation and juries –

The projects were evaluated by a jury made up of 63 people from National Education and the worlds of research, business and scientific mediation, chaired by Frédéric Restagno, French physicist and research director at the CNRS, for the high school jury and chaired by Gérard Langlais, CSR Consultant and Master Teacher/CSR Trainer at RS&PE for the middle school jury.

The jurors will have rated the projects according to criteria of originality, innovation, societal or local interest, experimentation, approach, rigor, method as well as their presentation, and, to a lesser extent, on the partnerships achieved.

The “Sciences at School” system, placed under the supervision of the ministries responsible for higher education and research and national education, aims to support and promote scientific and technical education in colleges and high schools, with students in general, technological and vocational tracks and those in post-baccalaureate classes.

“Sciences at School” pilots loan actions for cutting-edge scientific equipment and the organization of national and international scientific competitions, including the CGénial Competition and French participation in the International Chemistry, Geosciences and Physics Olympiads.
