What makes the scientific holiday excursions organised by Objectif Sciences International, luxury getaways, yet accessible to all? How is it that the young members of the association chance upon real flint dating from the Neolithic era and are able to subsequently publish high level articles? How is it that the teens who participate in our scientific holiday excursions give names of their choice to craters on Mars that are officially accepted worldwide? (More details on this can be found here)
Many who go through our website in detail tell us that the excursions we offer have little that is comparable elsewhere.
All of our excursions are, of course, approved by national authorities. But the quality on offer is primarily due to the fact that we have put in place an approach of teaching how to conduct research by carrying out research. Here is a quick overview of the different factors that go into making our tours exceptional…
The model chosen for the scientific holiday excursion is described here,
On another page of the website you can find the contents of the scientific research projects that we undertake, on the very topic of the best educational approach to be implemented,
Here you can read what we ask of our scientific educators.
To wrap up, you can also take a look at examples of reports of trips undertaken over the previous years (the 2007 report is here). We have been conducting these tours since 1992 and you can find the reviews for every year in the event logs updated daily by the participants. Get in touch with us to view the event logs of excursions that you find interesting!
