Celebrating Sports and Science: LFSF Students Take the Stage with OCHY's CEO

Celebrating Sports and Science:

LFSF Students Take the Stage with OCHY's CEO


LEARN MORE: WOMEN AND SCIENCE | HIGH SCHOOL

 

This week, the AEFE (Agency for French Education Abroad) celebrated the 6th edition of the Week of French Schools Worldwide, centered around the theme "Sports for Everyone." Coincidentally, the French Government marked its "Fête de la Science" last week—a week-long event encouraging educational institutions to promote sciences to their students.

LFSF seized this opportunity to organize various events, including a presentation from three Grade 12 students on Women and Sciences, which you can read about HERE.

The standout event, however, was organized by our Biology teacher, Amandine, who invited Khaldon EVANS, Co-founder & CEO of OCHY to give a presentation to our Gr9-12 students on his work combining science and sports. 

Khaldon was an athlete for ten years during which he got to run in competitions around the world. During his running years, he was confronted to challenges such as injuries, which gave him the idea to create an AI-powered app to track running performance and analyze running form in any athlete.

Presenting to our Grade 9-12 students, Khaldon offered a comprehensive explanation of Ochy's technology, providing insights into biomechanics and AI. While Ochy's headquarters are currently in Rennes, its team extends globally through their collaboration with researchers in Berkeley. 

Our students were really curious about the app, and even went on stage with Khaldon to help demonstrate how it works. They engaged in a Q&A session with the CEO to understand the way AI is involved in producing the results they saw. A few of our students who happen to be Python coders were even invited to join Khaldon's team after their studies!

Thank you Khaldon for inspiring our students during this presentation, and showing them the power that science can have on our health and daily life.
