The Halloween Race

What does it take to survive the spookiest holiday ever? It sure takes a lot of courage, knowledge and creativity... and then a good company makes everything easier and much more fun.

This Halloween, you're going to compete for being the best at teamwork, scaring others, communicating in English and, essentially, halloweening.

ATTENTION! We suggest you come on time if you can: this way, you won't miss any of the fun (or explanations). Halloween costumes are welcome but not required.

Shell Eco-marathon - a competition to build the most energy-efficient car

 

Do you know what Shell Eco-marathon is about? Most likely, you don't (unless you have read the title).

Well, today is the day to learn more about this worldwide competition that unites students around the world and challenges them to design, build and drive the most energy-efficient car.

This year I took part in the competition as a team member of Polyjoule - an ambitious project of Polytech'Nantes (french engineering school) - and I'll share my experience. You will learn how little fuel can a car consume, what might be waiting for us in the nearest future of automotive industry, which team won the competition and a lot of other not-so-useful information.

You are welcome with all your questions, and if we have enough time I'll speak about Paris Motor Show where we, Polyjoule, were showing off our energy-efficient vehicles.

Short Stories

Many years ago the Daily Telegraph newspaper in the UK ran a writing competition. The idea was to write a story or essay in exactly 50 words - not one more, not one less.
