Sure, there are always some nice surprises for us at La Chataigneraie College. We want proof of this in the new science room, the work of which was completed in April and which students have invested in since.
We had the opportunity to discover the ceiling decorations representing the periodic table of elements in our February 15 edition. The rest of the room largely depends on the ambitions of the teaching team, with its glossy niches filled with specimens and curiosities, as well as the display cases at the back of the room, dedicated to the natural sciences.
In line with an original idea by science teacher Auror Mercadier, this unique project was undertaken under the direction of Mr. Galvan from the Lot Department of Works.
In this uniquely decorated room, the materials used make the ecology the pride of place: firmakel partitions, wood wool insulation, French tiles (reduction in carbon footprint), emission-free paint, etc.
Mrs. Mercadier Lot would like to thank the speakers of the department who scaled this very original project, a true “showroom” of construction techniques respecting the environment. For example, the original partition was moved back 30 cm to allow the exhibition to be inserted into its thickness.
The laboratory / reserve part is equipped with functional furniture with drawers and doors fitted with brakes, with a very practical central island for storing equipment in use. As far as study material is concerned, it does not have its own ultramodern microscopes, which laptops will be delivered soon, are more suitable than normal tablets.
Future students, along with their parents, will be able to discover this wonderful environment next week during the welcome day for future college students.
Enough to make us regret that we are no longer old enough to study in this extraordinary temple of science!
