1. Science in bubbles
Created for the 2019 Fête de la science, the "Sciences en bulles" exhibition features science and comics. In this original exhibition, 12 research topics are presented in the form of comic strips in fields as varied as sociology, biomechanics, the environment or geology, to name but a few. The exhibition is made available free of charge by the scientific culture unit.
This exhibition accompanies the book Science in bubblesThis exhibition accompanies the book, an original adventure in scientific popularization during which, accompanied by their university institutions and laboratories, 12 doctoral students from all over France have worked on the narrative and visualization of their thesis with the illustrators Peb & Fox. Julie Braschi, a doctoral student in ecology at Aix-Marseille University, lent herself to the game of popularization through drawing by recounting her research on the ecological restoration of the island of Bagaud,
The exhibition can be complemented by the organization of the escape game
"The animation kit for this game can be downloaded here.
The exhibition is made up of 14 tarpaulins (4 eyelets) measuring 74cm x 74cm: technical sheet
A collection of holograms is available for loan free of charge and can be accompanied by an educational kit. It contains everything you need to make beautiful holograms. The only requirements are: a space with sufficient darkness and possibly access to running water.
