Students discover communication through electricity in Pleudihen-sur-Rance – Pleudihen-sur-Rance



CE1/CE2 and CE2/CM1 students from the Entre Terre et Mer school have become experts in electricity thanks to two meetings with Liam Guinan, professor of technology at the University of Rennes 1.

During the first part, they discovered how electrons work, made electrical circuits and learned about safety.

Code and decode

On Monday, May 23, Liam Guinan showed students a large-scale electrical circuit. “In the era of the SMS or the tweet, this was an opportunity to sweep away the dazzling history of the means of communication, from the Chappe telegraph to the internet, via the postal letter”, describe Céline Mével and Manon Riquier, teachers.

For the installation, cables were stretched between two school buildings so that the two classes could exchange coded messages. This permanent installation will allow students to practice writing short texts, coding and decoding them. This project joins that of the Kiosque which offers school students the opportunity to experiment with the coding and decoding of music.
