What Floats Your Boat?
Students use modeling clay, a material that is denser than water and thus ordinarily sinks in water, to discover the principle of buoyancy. They begin by designing and building boats out of clay that will float in water, and then refine their designs so that their boats will carry as great a load (metal washers) as possible. Building a clay boat to hold as much weight as possible is an engineering design problem. Next, they compare amount of water displaced by a lump of clay that sinks to the am

Le « web 2.0 » passionne face aux potentialités infinies qu’il semble être capable de proposer. Dans la courte, très courte histoire d’Internet, des relents de « nouveaux espaces », quelque peu comparables à ceux des années 1995-1996 apparaissent. Des espaces lointains, où le droit est omniprésent, de plus en plus, et ce, même si souvent son application pose problème.

La cartographie du système cérébral (audio)

La nature des relations entre cerveau et pensée a alimenté de nombreuses querelles philosophiques depuis plus de deux millénaires. C'est à la fin du 19ème siècle que des neurochirurgiens établirent que les fonctions cognitives modifient localement la circulation sanguine cérébrale (Roy et Sherrington, 1890), et que des lésions du cortex provoquent leur dysfonctionnement (Broca, 1863). Cette dernière approche, appelée neuropsychologie, a été jusqu'aux années 1980 la méthode ex
