Philologists held an aniversary «Акулы PеRа» business game


By the end of the year one more interesting event took place in the South Ural State University. The Educational Mass Media Project “Акулы PеRа” gathered high school and university students. They were suggested to solve several tasks, working in teams during a week:

  • to analyze the fallen problem;
  • to survey a group of people or to interview an expert;
  • to prepare a correctly written article;
  • to make up the newspaper front page with original design, text and photos;
  • to create a video about team-work;
  • to introduce all this during the on-site presentation in a press conference format.

The main topic of the event and students’ tasks this year was “The Uniting Power”. This power had an effect on many people, especially the participants, and those who supported the event with prizes and gifts.

15 partners from 7 countries have joined the project, turning the event into an exciting and a wonderful ceremony. We are glad to introduce a list of our partners, their prizes, and gifts here.
