Watts up?, How To?

Wednesday, November 18, 2015 at LPSC (from 13.30 to 16.00)

Students, with support of a reference professor, will organize an event to first present world energy issues and then manage a discussion with a large and non-specialist audience. Two different presentations will be made by two groups of 6 students each with the help of scientific experts, in order to allow creativity and spontaneity both in the way of presenting facts and answering questions.

Students should ensure the diffusion of the event within local association of young scientists in nuclear energy, local press, campus and lab associations about climate and energy issues. They will need all their pedagogy talents to make themselves as clear and convincing as possible. This year, all presentations will have to sum up the last synthesis report from the IPCC (Intergovernmental Panel on Climate Change) :

Climate Change 2014 Synthesis Report
