South Ural State University is once again opening its doors to talented schoolchildren who are participating in the Zvezda Multi-Disciplinary Engineering Olympiad. Beginning February 1st, the final stage of the Olympiad will be held at 85 venues across Russia.
The goal of the Zvezda Olympiad is to develop and stimulate interest among schoolchildren towards research and engineering and motivate them to enrol in engineering programmes at university. The Olympiad is organized by SUSU and the Russian Union of Engineers and co-organized by 68 leading Russian universities.
“From the results of the selection round, I want to especially note the academic institutions of the Chelyabinsk Region. More than 101,546 schoolchildren participated in the Olympiad, not including the Internet round. In the near future, the participants will have to solve interesting and complicated tasks, we want to wish them luck and success in the final stage,” stressed the SUSU Deputy Vice-Rector for Academic Affairs, Yuliya Bolotina.
The highest level of activity was shown by students from the largest cities of the Chelyabinsk Region, especially Chelyabinsk and Magnitogorsk. The most active participants of the selection round in Chelyabinsk were the students of academic institutions of the Leninskiy District. This year we also noted high numbers of participants from the Asha Municipality, and the Zlatoust, Kopeysk, and Miass Urban Districts.
