Any individual or group of two with an original scientific experience to present in public can participate in the national selection process that takes place as part of the National Festival Science on Stage 2021. Projects can be accepted in sciences, technology, engineering and mathematics (STEM), from primary to high school.

People with innovative ideas in home schooling that have been developed during the last months are particularly encouraged to apply.

Information and registration at sons@scnat until 15 October 2021 (extended!).

If you don't want to present a project, but just want to benefit from the experience of your colleagues, you can participate in the festival as a visitor. The visitors will be able to visit the candidates' booths and watch the "on stage" presentations of each team's project. In addition, during the jury's deliberations, two workshops will be organised. A visit to the Technorama will also be possible (registration by email at
