3D films : The Search for Snow

A passion for skiers, dream for children or life-saver for an Alpine village, snow both captivates us… and gets us thinking. It's a glistening white wonder, a promise of irrigation and an eagerly awaited spectacle, but climate change means its future looks uncertain. Between North America and Europe, the muffled hush of falling snowflakes and the thunderous roar of avalanches, a meteorologist looks at the complex processes of snow formation and its crucial impact on wildlife, plants and human activities.

Open workshop

Round off your visit by taking part in the various activities organised by our team of science communicators at the Vaisseau. Choose when and for how long you'd like to take part for an insight into the season's theme through an array of experiments and interactive activities. Designed for children aged 3 years and over, the Open workshop provides an introduction to scientific notions under the guidance of our science communicators. At the end, you'll be able to take away a hand-crafted item or ideas of experiments to try at home to amaze your own audience!
