Students of NIS returned with prizes straight from two olympiads in Russia – the All-Russian "Man - Earth - Space" and Mendeleevskaya.
According to the results of the All-Russian Olympiad of research projects on environmental issues "Man - Earth - Space", which took place in the city of Korolev, 18 students of Intellectual schools became prizewinners. Five projects were recognized as the best: “Current from under the floor tile” by Adiya Unbayeva and Alina Barmagambetova (Aktobe), “Atmosphere of Jupiter: Nonlinear analysis of photographic images” by Ayazhan Dulat and Daulet Berdesh (Almaty PhM), “DRONE with a rocket launch” by Dias Kosherbai ( Taraz), “Using organo-inorganic sorbents to increase plant resistance under salt stress conditions” by Darina Mukhamedzhanova (Taraz), “The Impact of Technogenic Pollution on the Morphological Structure of Diminutive Plant Species of Natural Phytocenosis in the Territory JSC SSGPO by Diana Kerimbayeva (Nur-Sultan IB).
The youngest winners of the NIS team were Aktobe seventh-graders. With their project "Current from under the floor tile," they propose to generate electricity while walking on special octagonal tiles.
- In the future, we want to implement a project in the school, replacing the tile on our model. Studies were conducted at the entrance, where children and school staff walk about 7,000 steps in an hour, - comments the scientific mentor of the students, Physics teacher Zhanibek Zhankulov.
At the prestigious Mendeleevskaya Olympiad, NIS representatives also won prizes. There are one silver and three bronze medals. In the intellectual competition, which took place in the city of St. Petersburg, two students of Pavlodar Intellectual School Daniil Melnichenko (second place) and Haidar Kairbek (third place) as well as Rustem Sherdebayev (third place) from Semey and Aydin Taishybay (third place) from Petropavlovsk distinguished themselves.
A record number of national teams of young chemists from 30 countries took part in the competition, which is more than 150 participants.
- For the first time I participated in such a grandiose international competition. And I am very glad that we could adequately represent our country. Since the 9th grade I have participated in various Chemistry olympiads, but this olympiad was special for me, Danil Melnichenko admits.
- Among the participants I was one of the youngest, as I competed mainly with 11-graders. The Olympiad was top notch. We met famous professors Beklemishev, Nenaydenko, Lunin and others. The organizers provided the participants with an opportunity not only to compete on the level of chemical knowledge and skills, but also to see the most beautiful cities of Russia - St. Petersburg and Peterhof, where the Institute of Chemistry of St. Petersburg State University is located. In turn, we express our gratitude to the teachers of Chemistry Assylbek Orazbay and Irina Babich, - notes the 10th grade student Haidar Kairbek.
