8 student-engineers in Geosciences and Environment participated in the 24 hours of innovation at the center of the Earth on November 17 and 18.

24 hours to find innovative and creative solutions to the subjects proposed by the member companies of the Avenia cluster, the competitiveness cluster dedicated to underground industries. This was the program on November 17 and 18 for 8 Geosciences and Environment engineering students from UniLaSalle, who had travelled to Bordeaux to compete alongside students from other higher education establishments.

In mixed teams, they pooled their ideas and knowledge to respond to future problems posed by companies in the energy and environment sector.

And in this little game, our students were quite successful! With a public choice award, a third place and the final victory for teams including a Lasallian, three of our eight participating students were rewarded.

This edition of the 24 Hours of Innovation at the Center of the Earth was particularly appreciated by the student-engineers involved, who emphasized that it was an enriching experience on a human level as well as on a scientific and technical level.
