Nos histoires

Nous reconnaissons le rôle crucial joué par nos partenaires du monde de l’éducation, par nos bénévoles, par nos champions et nos donateurs en suscitant l’engagement des enfants et des jeunes pour les sciences, la technologie, l’ingénierie et les mathématiques (les STIM). Voici une série d’histoires qui aident à illustrer le succès connu par Parlons sciences dans sa mission au cours des deux dernières décennies, grâce à nos collaborateurs exceptionnels.
