Newsletter ALFA #3 - March 2014
By promoting and facilitating scientific French-American exchanges, the Office for Science and Technology in Chicago aims at building bridges between French and American scientists. Is there a better a way than gathering them in a common science festival?
Thus, following the great success of the second edition in 2012, it is our great pleasure to present you the third edition of the French-American Science Festival, to be held in Chicago, 13-15 May, 2014. This event is a show case of the FR-US cooperation in sciences through conferences and interactive activities for students.
Two public conferences, hosted at the Alliance Française, are proposed this year with French and American leading scientists:
Climate Change: the 21st Century’s Challenge, on the 13th of May, 6:30 PM, with David ARCHER (University of Chicago) and Hervé LE TREUT (French Academy of Sciences).
Discovery of the Higgs Boson (Nobel Price 2013), on the 15th of May, 6:30 PM, with Scott DODELSON (Fermilab) and Michel SPIRO (CERN).
Also, on the 14th of May, a whole day called “Hands-on Science Learning” is dedicated to the discovery of sciences by students and their teachers, through hands-on experiments! The booths are run by our French and American scientific partners from numerous universities and research institutes. Some of the subjects scheduled are nuclear energy, superconductivity, electric cars, energy storage, nanotechnologies, molecular Biology, 3D imaging, microbiology, etc.
All these events are free and you are cordially invited to attend. More information on the web page: http://sciencefest.france-science.org/
Also, news from ALFA researches from the last month.
Enjoy your reading!
