The Jardin Experimental is a French interface between science and citizen (see after for details).

In 2011 the Jardin Experimental will work at an international level for the IYC. Different projects are engaged to show the omnipresence of chemistry in everyday Life. They can be discussed with anyone interested in.

Part of the projects will take place around Geneva's Lake, between France and Switzerland.

These are including: molecular gastronomy, lectures, shows, workshops, schools projects, special gardens...

We are interested in collaboration with motivated partners.

Let's celebrate Chemistry!
