A University of Windsor professor travelled across the globe this summer to dig into the origins of rare metals in the Earth’s crust.

Iain Samson, a professor in the Department of Earth and Environmental Sciences, ventured to China for three weeks to teach and conduct fieldwork.

Dr. Samson began the trip by teaching a short course to researchers and graduate students on metals and fluids in hydrothermal systems at the China University of Geosciences Beijing (CUGB) on June 23.

Campers hatch a plan in engineering egg drop

Lancer Engineering campers put the finishing touches on their apparatus that will carry their egg from the third floor of the Ed Lumley Centre for Engineering Innovation to the ground.Lancer Engineering campers put the finishing touches on their apparatus that will carry their egg from the third floor of the Ed Lumley Centre for Engineering Innovation to the ground.

Sydney Ryan may have had a slight advantage over her fellow campers.

The 12-year-old has a knack for engineering and builds race car tracks for her brothers and boats at home using found materials.

So, it’s no surprise that when tasked with the challenge to bring an egg safely to the ground from three storeys up, Ryan had a plan.

“We are trying to make a bird’s nest and have a base with a spongey-kind of foam material, a layer of paper and then a web of tight string that goes on either side of the egg,” Ryan said, who will be going into Grade 8 in the fall.

On a rainy Tuesday evening, educators at Talbot Trail Public School sat in a semi-circle and fixed their gaze on a screen in the library.

Seven geometric shapes of various colours lay scattered in front of each person while on the other side of the world, educators in Chongqing, China began a lesson on Grade 2 arithmetic.

“This has been a life-changing experience for us,” said Talbot Trail principal Chris Mills.

“We are able to learn what works over there and they are learning what works over here.”
