partnership is necessary
body becomes a world measure
understanding the global through the local
Par l'espace, l'univers me comprend et m'engloutit
comme un point; par la pensée, je le
comprends » Pascal
"Through space the universe grasps me and swallows
me up like a speck; through thought I grasp it."

European partnership : Scienceduc and POLLEN
Situation in Europe :
Ambitious goals for 2010 ( Lisbon)/
few E.U partnerships in education
/ subsidiarity / different curricula
/ science generally consider as a
secondary matter/ teacher not
ease with science / few
investigation approach ...
Support of DG research for 2
projects for formal education
Scienceduc (7 countries) : network
of national programmes on teacher
training/ dissemination /
evaluation…
POLLEN :12 cities / 12 countries /
1 goal / 1 approach / 12 models /
common tools/evaluation and
trainings + key issue

Conclusions
In 10 years in France : science in 3%  50% classes.
In Europe t x 25 ?
Pollen exponential effect ??
Scientist can play an essential role,
•
•
•
•
Promotion and implication at national and european scale
Accompanying teachers
Training
Writing guides for teachers and for trainers…
And astronomy too
It is an interdisciplinary domain by itself
It improves representations of the world at local and global level,
environment & abstraction
It facilitates collaborative and international work
