In 2009, we create the astronomy and philosophy teaching; This teaching was optional. In 2010, with the high school reform, the astronomy teaching was include in the curriculum of the first year for 22 pupils. It last 54hours, 2 hour per week during 27 weeks.

It is included in exploration and scientific approach teaching (called MPS in France, Methodes et Pratiques Scientifiques).

 

It is still an pedagogical experiment, followed by the education ministry (Lyon office).
