Chiche is a program in France that aims to address and approach the second-grade students with the principle of educating them on three key points:
- make them understand digital technology as a science and more generally the impact of science in society,
- introduce them to the world of research by telling these young peoples about the career and profession as a scientist
- encourage their vocations, especially among girls students.
On 8th June 2021, a secondee of ARIA project at Inria, Antoine Fondanèche, made a speech via Chiche for the highschool students in Bordeaux. Antoine shared with them his scientist career together with the secondment trips made in ARIA project. The speech has helped the high school students in their choice in the near future.
