MérisCool – Le volet scolaire du Mériscope
One goal of MérisCool is to develop a school program – for the time being – for Canadian students of the secondary level: The idea is to offer courses of different duration (from ½ up to 4 days) based on different modules such as lectures on different topics, various group projects and of course boat trips. We also plan to work together with other local organizations such as «Parc Nature de Pointe-aux-Outardes» and «Explos-Nature» in Bergeronnes.
In addition to that, we also make our field courses accessible to younger students having just passed their Matura exam: therefore we have sent our annual flyer not only to universities but also to Swiss high schools which turned out to be a good idea as we already had two Swiss girls attending our student field course in 2018.
On top of that, we open doors for Swiss high school students to spend 4 weeks of their summer holidays at our place in Portneuf-sur-Mer in order to collect data for their Matura thesis and to voluntarily participate in our field courses.
Last but not least, we offer a wide range of lectures and workshops to Swiss schools no matter what level.
