The MARISTES TOULOUSE: Collegians living the dream with Thomas PESQUET.

Toulouse is a city which is situated in the south of France right at the heart of the department of Haute Garonne in the Occitania region.  Built around the Garonne River which flows through the heart of the city, Toulouse was the theatre for many notable historical events such as the crusades led by the French Kings against the heretic Cathares during the middle ages. The county of Toulouse was annexed to the French realm at the end of the 13th century.

Today this metropolis and French capital of Aeronautics and Aerospace is home to such prestigious establishments as the Centre National d'Etudes Spatiales (CNES) but also such industrial giants as TAS (Thales Alenia Space) and ADS (Airbus Defence and Space). The famous City de l’Espace, a scientifically oriented theme park, specifically geared towards the discovery, exploration and the development of space travel is one of the many tourist attractions appreciated by visitors to the city.

The College-Lycée Les Maristes Toulouse has been situated in the Montaudran neighbourhood since 2012. The school was built just next to the site of the Montaudran runway. The self-same runway from which the planes of the Aerospatiale, flown by the pioneers of civil aviation such as Jean Mermoz, Henri Guillaumet, Paul Vachet ou Antoine de Saint Exupéry, took off at the beginning of the 20th century.

Over the past three years, the college has been working in partnership with the CNES on the project « Mission eXplore : Je m'entraîne comme un astronaute » involving both the Physical Education and Biology programs. The goal of this project, created by the NASA in 2011, is to give youngsters an insight into life in outer space. The Maristes’ objective with this project, via the bias of the scientific and sporting challenges as well as the project "Liaison ARISS" with Thomas Pesquet, is to promote:the sciences and the professions linked to space studies the necessity of associating regular sports activities with a healthy and balanced diet.

ARISS is an international educational outreach program partnering the volunteer support and leadership from AMSAT and IARU societies around the world with the ISS space agencies partners: NASA, Russian Space Agency, ESA, CNES, JAXA, and CSA.

ARISS offers an opportunity for students to experience the excitement of Amateur Radio by talking directly with crewmembers on board the International Space Station. Teachers, parents and communities see, first hand, how Amateur Radio and crewmembers on ISS can energize youngsters' interest in science, technology, and learning.
