The French program includes actions to make students aware of the professional world, and make them reflect on future career paths choices. Exposure to professionals who can share their passion and experience is extremely valuable. Mr. Le Boyer, who is a research scientist at the Scripps Institute, recently discussed with 8 the grade students regarding his occupation, with the hope of instilling passionate interest in the work of an oceanography scientist. Thank you to Mr. Le Boyer for taking the time to come on campus, and thank you to Mr. Giot for making this happen !
