Inra and the Institute Sciences Animales Paris-Saclay participated in the 10th anniversary celebration of the S [CUbe] association.  This association, which is dedicated to diffusing scientific and technical culture throughout the Ile de France region celebrated its anniversary at the Opera in Massy from November 17 to 19, 2017.  The program included visits, workshops, expositions, conferences, a concert and shows for all ages from  6 to 106 years of age.

To celebrate its 10th anniversary, the association was invited by the Opera in Massy from November 17 to 19, 2017, to organise an event entitled "Science at the Opera". The population was invited to share knowledge and imagination around the sciences during three days of discoveries.

Sciences and arts, philosophy and techniques were associated to surprise, show and share through different events. Many varying activites were offered for all ages : families and the public, schools, experts, professionals of scientific mediation ....
