Intro to Engineering
Students are introduced to the basic principles behind engineering and the types of engineering while learning about a popular topic - the Olympics. The involvement of engineering in modern sports is amazing and pervasive. Students learn about the techniques of engineering problem solving, including brainstorming and the engineering design process. The importance of thinking out of the box is stressed through a discussion of the engineering required to build grand, often complex, Olympic event c

Can You Catch the Water?
Students construct a three-dimensional model of a water catchment basin using everyday objects to create hills, mountains, valleys and water sources. They experiment to see where rain travels and collects, and survey water pathways to see how they can be altered by natural and human-made activities. Students discuss how engineers design structures that impact water collection, and systems that clean and distribute water.

Femmes et droit en Islam - Sana Ben Achour (video)

Le propos est de montrer comment, aujourd’hui, dans les pays de culture musulmane, notamment dans les pays du Maghreb, se réarticule, se construit et se noue autour de la réforme du statut personnel ou de la famille, un système de normativité où droit et religion, tradition et modernité, droits universels et spécificités culturelles et identitaires, sont en «équilibre transactionnel » (pour reprendre une formule chère à Jacques Berque). Il est donc important de retracer la gen
