An 11th grade student of Nazarbayev Intellectual School of Chemistry and Biology in Pavlodar Diyar Tulenov won a bronze medal of the Asian Physics Olympiad which finished today in Australia.
The Asian Physics Olympiad is a unique annual intellectual competition in Physics among students from the countries of the Asia-Pacific region, which has been held since 2000. The strongest competitors from 22 countries of the world arrived to an Australian city of Adelaide. According to the results of the competition, the national team of 8 Kazakhstani students achieved three bronze medals.
“Last year, Diyar received an honorary diploma, but this time the bronze medal. In general, this is an excellent indicator, since the strongest physicists participated in the competition. It is known that the Asian Olympiad is considered the most difficult, in contrast to the International Physical Olympiad of schoolchildren which is the most prestigious one. The achievement is the result of a lot of hard work, a special interest in Physics and purposefulness of the student”, admits Nazymgul Karimova, a Physics teacher, who prepares the talented student for the Olympiads from the 7th grade.
Today, Diyar Tulenov is the owner of scholarships for studies at the Higher School of Economics (Russia), Nazarbayev University and the Kazakh-British Technical University. Moreover, the NIS student became one of the top eight of the country's strongest physicists in December 2018.
“For me, the Olympiad is a way of self-development and my future profession, because I plan to become a scientist in the field of Physics,” says Diyar.
It should be noted that on April 27, during his visit to Nazarbayev Intellectual School in Pavlodar, President Kasym-Zhomart Tokayev wished Diyar Tulenov to win the Nobel Prize.
