I learned the centrality of kids in our societies not only by becoming a mother myself but, before that, by listening to the people everywhere I went. This might come as silly, yet I had then the feeling I truly learned something here. For most of the people I spent time with, the act of parenting and the future of their kids, – not theirs, – were just central in their lives, their plans, their fights. I met of course with many children along with their parents and also wrote reports more directly relating to kids (you will find some of them in other parts of my portfolio). But here is the recreative section, the one where I can say: here, kids rule!
I managed a six-month project with teenagers aiming at producing scientific web journalism.
Exciting projects are everywhere. I helped introducing wheeled robots to kids and documented it in part.
When a large weekly news magazine asks me to write a report about kids visiting Le Louvre museum during the summer break, we are sure of only one thing: this needs to be fun. That was easy!
