Reception of schoolboys and girls :

During their studies, college students must perform a "work experience" for a few days. Depending upon the institutions to which they belong, these courses take place in the 4th or the 3rd grade. 

Following the Laboratoire d'Astrophysique de Toulouse-Tarbes (LATT), the Centre Study of Space Radiation (CESR) and the Laboratory of Terrestrial and Planetary Dynamics (DTP), the Institut de Recherche en Astronomie et Planétologie (IRAP) engaged in welcoming these young boys and girls. The objective is to enable them to discover the research environment and actors in the field of the Sciences of the Universe. To this end, each student meets successively the researchers, engineers, PhD students, postdocs, technicians, computer specialists, managers, librarians of the laboratories which make up the Observatoire Midi-Pyrenees : Institut de Recherche en Astronomie et Planétologie (IRAP), Laboratoire d'Aérologie (LA), Laboratory of Geophysics and Oceanography (LEGOS), Centre d'Etudes Spatiales of the Biosphere (CESBIO), Laboratory of Functional Ecology (Ecolab), Laboratory of Geological and Transfer Mechanisms (LMTG) and Common Services (UMS).
