Manuel Boudreault and his Secondary V Physics students are having an intense strategic discussion - about laser chess. Once the games start, says Boudreault, "I'm not allowed to help them. But they're good. They know what to do."

Boudreault came to Université Laval with his entire Secondary V Physics class at A.S.
