ALC Meknes Student Finalist in International Science and Engineering Fair

Ahmed Lamrani, an Intermediate 6 student at the ALC Meknes, is traveling to Phoenix, Arizona, to take part in the 64th Intel International Science and Engineering Fair (Intel ISEF). Ahmed is a finalist in the competition due to his invention of a “smart helmet” for motorbike riders. According to Ahmed, the motorbike won’t start if the rider is not wearing his helmet.

Intel ISEF brings together more than 1500 of the most curious and capable young science pioneers from more than 70 countries to share ideas and compete for more than $4 million in awards and scholarships.

ACA website

Hi all,

Maybe it wasn’t my LAST, last message. Nadia asked about posting an article to the ACA website and who’d be taking over. It’s over to Lisa now, to update the ACA website. That being said, any of you (don’t be afraid!) can post an article to the website by simply mailing to this address:

When you do, give it some time to appear (maybe 15 minutes or more). It will show eventually. You can embed pictures in the email or attach them.

Take care,

Hal on behalf of…
