Communication to the public is an important part of List_MAPS. All ESRs participate in outreach events to develop their skills in communication to a non-specialist public. For their first outreach workshop the ESRs have benefit to the expertise of the department « Experimentarium » of the University of Burgundy. This department is specialized to promote science to the general public. This first outreach workshop took place in Dijon on wednesday 14th and thursday 15th of October 2015. On wednesday afternoon the ESRs received a training by Lionel Maillot, head of the Experimentarium, and his team. It was an opportunity for ESRs to acquire specific skills and knowhow to explain their research to non-specialist public. On Thursday they went to the international school « lycée Charles de Gaulle » to meet pupils. Each ESR met several groups of five pupils during a limited time length of 10 minutes to explain their research project.
