During January and February 2006, I participated in a teaching
initiative of the Schlumberger
Excellence in Educational Development (SEED) program. The goal
was to coach a small group of teenagers in doing a physics project
related to oil field services. The results of this mutual learning experience (the kids taught me French & I taught them
magnetic exploration) were proudly presented by my group at the
yearly science fair "Bouge la Science" at Supelec:
Prospection Magnétique dans la Salle de Classe (poster)
As an introduction to the subject, I wrote the
Magnetic Exploration Guide for Pupils
To download the guide, click here
(PDF). The guide does not assume any previous knowledge on magnetism.
However, it is useful to understand the difference between a vector
and a scalar.
