The second day of the #Clair2023 event, held on February 2 and 3, opened with a Pedagogical Fair during which students from the Centre d'apprentissage du Haut-Madawaska (CAHM) were able to present projects in which they are involved.

Each week, for half a day, students from kindergarten to 2 years old wille year, those of 3e at 5e year and those of 6e at 8e The students leave the regular class setting to participate in a hands-on workshop of their choice. In fact, at the beginning of the school year, they choose two themes that interest them from a list of proposals. From the beginning of the school year until March, they participate in a weekly workshop. Then, for the rest of the school year, they do another project.

"The beauty of the workshops is that students take part in interdisciplinary projects that allow them to connect with students in other grades. Plus, students choose topics that interest them and can invest half the year in each," says a teacher we met there.

The creative side and problem solving skills of the students are also highly solicited through the proposed themes. Circular manufacturing, renewable energy, candle making, glow show, innovative fashion, smart musical instruments, cooking, fabric printing, 3D printing are among the choices. More traditional workshops such as sports, yoga, student radio, stories and legends are also offered. The idea is to reach out to the students' interests as much as possible so that they will want to get involved.
