Kids and adults alike are learning about the role worms play in our earth, courtesy of the NYC Compost Project. See how to keep worms in your home, in container bins, and turn food waste into reusable compost.
Une petite commune de la Sarthe, Pincé, a solennellement remis vendredi une paire de poules à tous les foyers volontaires, dans une démarche à la fois "conviviale" et "citoyenne" destinée notamment à réduire le volume des déchets ménagers organiques.
Dans le cadre des samedis numériques, la médiathèque vous invite le samedi 6 octobre, à découvrir Arduino. Il s’agit d’un boîtier permettant la création d’objets électroniques. Le matin (10h30-12h00) : Présentation générale.
L’après-midi (14h-15h30 ou 15h30-17h) : Ateliers pratiques pour manipuler la plateforme : faire clignoter des diodes, créer un émetteur-récepteur... Pour adultes et adolescents - Gratuit.

Ready for some high-flying quadcopter action at Maker Faire New York? Parallax will be demoing their ELEV-8 quadcopters live on the Make: Demo Stage (in the Maker Shed) at 4pm both Saturday and Sunday.
From all of us to all of you: Happy making! (Gregory Hayes / MAKE) The lights are out, the doors are locked, the diet coke is all mopped up or washed away, and the curtain has come down on the third annual World Maker Faire New York.
Researchers at the University of Illinois at Urbana-Champaign, Tufts University, and others have created fully biodegradable electronics that could allow doctors to implant medical sensors or drug delivery devices that dissolve when they're no longer needed. The transient circuits can be programmed to disappear after a set amount of time based on the durability of their silk-protein coating
"You want the device to serve a useful function, but after that function is completed, you want it to simply disappear by dissolution and resorption into the body," says John Rogers, a physical chemist at the University of Illinois at Urbana-Champaign and senior author on the study, recently published in Science.
The authors demonstrate this possibility with a resorbable device that can heat the area of a surgical cut to prevent bacterial growth. They implanted the heat-generating circuit into rats. After three weeks, the authors examined the site of the implant and found that the device had nearly completely disappeared, leaving only remnants of the silk coating, which is eliminated more slowly than the silicon and magnesium of the circuit itself.
"New AHRC film looks at how creative innovation can translate to new products. Arts and humanities research generates innovative ideas with real-world applications and commercial potential. One example of research that is realising this potential and contributing to economic growth is an AHRC-funded Knowledge Exchange project at the University of the West of England.
In this film we see how researchers at the Centre for Fine Print Research, Led by Professor Stephen Hoskins and his team, have developed new methods of creating ceramics using 3D printing technology and worked with Denby Potteries to test designs and develop prototype models in ceramics.
The team hopes to bring ancient tradition into the 21st century, joining together old and new hand-in-hand in a project that continues to push boundaries in this area of ceramic research." For further information, please go to: http://www.uwe.ac.uk/sca/research/cfpr/ ;
La Machine de Rube Goldberg est un enchaînement de mécanismes (poulies, engrenages, leviers…) dans le but de déclencher une action parfaitement absurde : servir une tasse de café, préparer une tartine, etc….
Ludique et pédagogique, cet atelier est avant tout un prétexte au bricolage et à la créativité.
