The Maison pour la science

The Paris Île-de-France Maison pour la science (“The Science House”) offers the primary and secondary school teachers in Paris, a series of professional development courses in science, bringing them closer to the science and technologies being developed in research laboratories. 

The Maison pour la science

The fruits of a partnership between Sorbonne University and the Paris Rectorate, the Paris-Île-de-France The Science House joins the existing network of 10 Regional Houses, supported by the Academy of Sciences and coordinated by the Fondation La main à la pâte.

Professional development for Parisian teachers

Starting in the 2019-2020 academic year, The Science House will be implementing educational courses based on an investigative approach, questioning our daily lives dealing with scientific and interdisciplinary themes such as "Climate and me", "Teaching biodiversity in the city" or "Food and health", which are among the seven themes offered to Parisian teachers.

Through these actions, The Science House helps bring together the educational, scientific and industrial communities, made up of engineers, researchers and academic researchers with teachers from the French National Education system to co-construct coherent actions that reflect current research and are in line with school curricula.

The Paris Île-de-France Maison pour la science was inaugurated on 16 October 2019 on the Pierre and Marie Curie campus of Sorbonne University.

The faculty of medicine is closed to the public and operates according to a business continuity plan (research, pedagogy, administrative) since Monday, March 16, 2020. The closure of the faculty to the public effectively results in the cancellation of all courses in face-to-face. Research activities and vital administrative activities are maintained, under the conditions specified by the university administration in the Business Continuity Plan. Beyond the end of classroom lessons, university libraries are closed. The situation is constantly changing, staff and students are invited to consult their emails, the university intranet and the FAQ to stay informed.

All users (students and staff) have access to more precise information on a dedicated page:
