In 2010 an experimental program was launched to see how teaching science in the spirit of “La main à la pâte” could be applied to the schooling of children with mental or physical disabilities. From 2010 to 2016 a group of 40 primary school teachers were involved in this program. Interviews with all these teachers and the analysis of specific days (called study days) have revealed a number of constants that highlight both the contributions of science teaching based on investigation as well as the difficulties. This 5-year experiment has enabled a number of teachers to train in science and resulted in new ideas to improve the training of teachers in science education.
