MONTREAL, Jan. 6, 2015 / CNW Telbec / - According to data from the Ministère de l'Éducation, du Loisir et du Sport, the success rates in science for students attending a private educational institution are above of 95 % (results for June 2012 and June 2013). How to get students to succeed? We asked the member institutions of our network to share winning initiatives for science education. We invite you to consult the photo file which brings together these initiatives by clicking here.

“Students' interest in science starts early and quickly turns into passion when curiosity is stimulated,” explains Normand Brodeur, coordinator of educational services. Whether they are in elementary or secondary school, students are naturally inclined to ask questions about the understanding of various phenomena that surround them. Why is it dark at night? How does the solar system work? Why does my cell phone no longer work in the woods? We must start from these questions that children ask to engage them in a rigorous scientific process. "
