ISCR @ 30th edition of the "Fête de la science"

ISCR researchers will share exiting science in Rennes area with various animations, exhibitions, conferences (October 5 to 8)
ISCR present at the 30th edition of the "Fête de la science"

The 30th edition of the Fête de la science takes place in the West of France, from October 1 to 11, 2021. Workshops, conferences, exhibitions, ... are scheduled on different sites. You will find here after an overview of the activities organized by the Rennes Institute of Chemical Sciences (ISCR).

 

Chemical experiments for schoolchildren

From Tuesday 5 to Thursday 7 of October, at the Science Village (Champs-Libres), School groups will have the opportunity to attend chemical experiences such as :

  •  Lavender hydrodistillation
  •  Extraction / separation of chlorophyll from spinach or prunus leaves
  •  Red cabbage, lava lamp
  •  Extraction of rose oil in the microwave
  •  Bioplastics: milk polymer and / or alginate beads, carrageenan

Fragrance bubbles

  • Science village in Rennes (Champs Libres)
  • October 8 at 3:30 pm

Chemical or natural: How do our senses perceive fragrances in the midst of complex mixtures compared to pure molecules ? Through 4 complex mixtures we will assess your ability to determine if we are on a natural product or on a molecule coming from the laboratory.

In a sensory journey of scientific discoveries, this part is accessible to visually impaired people.

Conference “Astonishing Polymers! "

The conference will be given, October 7, at the same time in several cities including Rennes.

For Rennes

  • Address : Édulab Pasteur - purple room, at 02 place Pasteur 35000 Rennes, 1st floor
  • Public reception at 5.45 p.m., start of the conference at 6 p.m.
  • Speakers : Sophie Guillaume & Jean-Luc Audic

The conference “Astonishing Polymers! " will be the occasion to celebrate the 50 years of the French Polymer Group (GFP) and a century of polymers. The conference will present how polymers have contributed to our society in the past, present and future, in fields as diverse as energy, mobility, environment, information / communication or health.

Free entry, subject to availability, on presentation of the health pass for people over 12 years old.

Conference "From fossil chemistry to green chemistry: 3.0 mobility"

  • Conference place : Médiathèque de Brécé
  • October 8 at 6:30 pm
  • Speaker : Jeoffrey Tourneur

Jeoffrey Tourneur will explain in a simple way how electric cars work and their interest in relation to environmental issues. Energy storage, chemistry, mobilities, and climate crisis are important issues which are too often treated separately.

  • Why energy storage is a chemical question ?
  • How does this chemical storage permit a polluting not green mobility and a green sustainable mobility ?

Jeoffrey Tourneur, PhD student in MaCSE team of ISCR, in collaboration with H2X Ecosystems company, will lead us in a trip in history from the physical traction (vehicle 1.0), passing by the oil era (vehicle 2.0) to electric vehicle (3.0). During this trip, we will speak about an essential topic, that is mobility, through the prism of chemical energy storage processes and their climatic impact.
