Until Sunday October 10, 2021, it was Natural History Museum from night (nord) It introduces researchers and doctoral students through workshops that form a Scientific course. Entry is free for this event.
It took place as part of the thirtieth edition of the Fête de la Science. The public will be able to discover the thematic project “From discoveries to passion, a journey of research” thanks to 6 workshops organized along the way that allow visitors to visit the rest of the museum at the same time.
This year, many areas of research will be addressed, from image rights to physical reactions caused by emotions, including cancer resistance to treatment.
It is the will of the organization, explains Camille DeFischer, who is responsible for scientific intermediation at the University of Lille and coordinator of the project: “The goal, of course, is to advance research and science, but above all to demonstrate the diversity that exists in research.”
From this point of view, the workshops were designed to allow continuity of the visit and at the same time take into account this continuity in the research process.

And it’s not just visitors who will learn things during the event. Moderators, and doctoral students and researchers, had to adapt in order for themselves to be understood by the general public: “For the participating researchers and doctoral students, the goal is to allow them to mediate, so that they can make their speech understandable to as many people as possible,” explains Camille DeFischer.
Indeed, it is not always easy, as mediator Blanche reveals to us: “It is questionable because we use terms that are familiar to us but are actually very technical.”
A science festival that will therefore benefit the general public as well as researchers and doctoral students. The event will be open to all visitors on Saturday and Sunday October 9 and 10, 2021. For the occasion, the rest of the museum will be available for free as well.
