High schools (age minimum: 12)

SOLEIL is open to visitors from Tuesday to Thursday, except during school vacations (zone C - France vacations), subject to availability.


Duration : 1h30

  • Meeting point in front of the welcome pavilion
  • Fun presentation on the applications or jobs of the SOLEIL synchrotron (due to the health situation, this presentation cannot take place and is replaced by an introduction on our posters or our tactile tables)
  • A tour of the synchrotron to discover the educational workshops (due to the health situation, most of these workshops are not accessible at the moment), as well as the experimental hall and the control room.

To prepare your visit

Before each class' field trip, we ask the teachers to prepare the visit by introducing it to the students. On our website, you can find explanatory videos as well as educational resources on light-matter interactions and on waves in everyday life. Each class will be asked to have prepared 5 questions to start the visit.

Attention, the site is forbidden to children under 12 years old.

We ask you to be particularly careful with the size of your group: any person exceeding the maximum group size (10, 20, 30 or 40 depending on the time slot), whether a student or an accompanying person, will be refused entry to the site.

Please also note that the next few slots (Wednesday, March 16 at 2:00 pm, Wednesday, April 20 at 2:00 pm, Thursday, April 21 at 9:30 am) are reserved for requests between 1 and 7 people. We thank you for respecting this organization and for not registering on these slots with your class.
