Created integrated program for approximately 200 students:
- students have created two imaginary villages. Approaching the subject from various disciplines, they created scale models, software presentations and oral presentations about these towns.
- to date, two of six projected towns have been completed: a village of the future and a Quebec village circa 1853.
Created a researchers' association for students. To qualify for membership, a student must present the idea for a research project for approval, carry it out, present results and write up a report.
