Our history:

Several scientific missions and expeditions involving scientists and adventurers have taken place in the last few years. Among these was “SANTO2006”, which aimed at making an inventory of biodiversity in the Vanuatu Archipelago.


The French Institute for Education (IFé) is assigned the pedagogical follow-up of the Santo2006 expedition.

During that period, teachers from pilot classes create and validate study protocols with students by daily follow-ups of the “SANTO2006” expedition.


Secondary schools work  on the repetition of a scientific project dealing with biodiversity on a regional level in partnership with scientific organisms.

Since 2010, schools can also do pedagogical follow-ups of scientific missions currently taking place.
