Chrysalides et Papillons veut inciter les jeunes à participer à une activité de sciences par le biais d’un projet touchant la biodiversité des insectes et plus spécifiquement à la métamorphose du papillon. Le projet a été conçu pour que l’ensemble des élèves de chacune des classes puisse participer.

Le CLS en collaboration avec différents établissements scolaires de la région a décidé de mettre en place ce projet scientifique pour motiver les élèves en explorant l’univers du vivant.

Ce projet qui s’échelonne sur une période de deux semaines séparées en trois temps :

1- L’exploration du monde fascinant des insectes ;

2- De la chenille au papillon : les élèves assisteront en classe au processus de la métamorphose ;

3- L’envolée : une cérémonie suivant les rites des peuples amérindiens sera célébrée.
