A look back at ESSIAL's participation in Science Fair 2021.

The Science Village held on Saturday 2 October 2021 from 10am to 6pm as part of the 2021 Science fair (Fête de la Science) was an opportunity to present some of the particularities of the ESSIAL project to the general public. 

The processes and techniques used in the ESSIAL project are not always easy to understand for a lay audience. The aim of the Science fair is to popularise science and make it more understandable to the general public. Thus, the engineering school ESIEE, which coordinates the project and has recently joined UniLaSalle, has developed a serious game to help understand one of the essential processes of the ESSIAL project. 

This game, entitled MAGAME, makes the understanding the magnetisation and demagnetisation process more easy. It has been designed to be played in the manner of a classic board game in which players take turns. The Science fair was therefore an opportunity to present it to the public along with a video of the project, and thus to explain the process of one of the essential parts of the project.
