Sverdlovsk and Perm schoolchildren are invited to participate in the Science to Regions × Empathy project
07.09.2023 — News
The PhysTech School Development Foundation and Mikhail Shelkov's Empathy Charitable Foundation are launching a free educational project titled "Science to Regions × Empathy." It is intended for students in grades 9-10 at schools of Sverdlovsk Region and Perm Territory. The project includes two tracks of preparation for the Unified State Exam (USE): first, the physics and mathematics track, and second, the computer science track, the Empathy Foundation's press office told RusBusinessNews.
High school students will attend two stages: a distance education course (October 2023 – January 2024) and an in-person educational shift at the Moscow Institute of Physics and Technology (MIPT) in March 2024.
The students registered in the project will have to take an entrance test, based on which the organizers will select 300 participants. During four months, the selected students will attend online classes with MIPT professors in their chosen field of study and complete homework assignments. A retest will take place at the end of the first stage.
Based on attendance, grades for homework, and scores for the exit testing, the organizers will select 60 people with the best results from the two regions. They will be invited to a full-time two-week shift at MIPT in Moscow, where they will continue intensive preparation for the USE in their chosen field. The participants will also engage in project activities in specific areas and a cultural and leisure program with visits to Moscow sights and introduction to the MIPT ecosystem.
With the support of the Empathy Foundation, participation in all the project stages, including training, accommodation, meals, and transfers, will be free for students and teachers.
The project website stores more information and a registration form http://sciencetoregion.go2phystech.ru/.
In the 2022/2023 academic year, the PhysTech School Development Foundation and Michael Shelkov's Empathy Foundation conducted the first project of a kind for students in grades 8-9 and teachers of physics, math, and computer science. Its participants visited a two-week full-time physics, mathematics, and IT learning shift in Moscow.
