To celebrate its 50th anniversary, Inserm is coming to meet you by joining the Science Tour! Throughout the year, ten minibuses will be touring France to look for tomorrow’s scientists.

This educational road show is aimed at making science accessible to everyone (general public, schoolchildren and students). A network of facilitators distributed throughout the territory will offer a variety of scientific activities (experiments, games, models, investigations, etc.).

Science Tour is visiting Armentières as part of the Testathlon, a sports event organised to benefit research on digestive diseases.

As a partner in this project, designed by the Petits Débrouillards association, the C’est Pas Sorcier educational TV programme and France Télévision, Inserm will present its virtual museum, short films (Virus Attack, POM Bio à Croquer, A Bord du Nanotilus (On Board the Nanotilus) etc.).

On board a “mobile” laboratory, you can also take part in many activities that help in understanding the mechanics of life.
