Description

Building an inclusive society is an active field nowadays. Of course education is a key entry for people with disabilities to fulfill their citizenship. We propose to present a couple of initiatives recently taken in France in that direction, by letting the pupils with disabilities discover and share science: in particular the operation "La Main à la Päte" promoted by Académie des Sciences and an effort undertaken by the Ministry of Education and scientists from CNRS to improve the instruction of teachers of physics and chemistry to work with those pupils.
