This Olympiad is one of the most prestigious and massive competitions of schoolchildren in chemistry all over the world. 135 schoolchildren from 22 countries took part this year: Russia, Belarus, Azerbaijan, Armenia, Bulgaria, Hungary, Georgia, Israel, Kazakhstan, Kyrgyzstan, Latvia, Lithuania, Moldova, Mongolia, Romania, Saudi Arabia, Tajikistan, Turkmenistan, Turkey, Uzbekistan, Ukraine and Croatia. The national team of Russia included 10 winners and winners of the All-Russian Olympiad of schoolchildren in chemistry.
The participants competed for the title of the best young chemists. Traditionally, the Mendeleev Olympiad is held in three rounds: two theoretical and one practical, including tasks on the sections of inorganic, organic, analytical and physical chemistry.
At the closing ceremony on April 28, the names of the winners were announced. Russia won the first place as a team, winning 7 gold and 3 silver medals.
In 2018, RUDN was chosen as the main operator of the final stage of the All-Russian Olympiad of schoolchildren, organizing 24 subject Olympiads, preparatory training and participation of the Russian team in the international stage.
We were not expecting the results we got this day, 40 students who love Russian language took the first step to learn Russian and they did great on their first day of classes! Tomorrow two more groups will start learning Russian without leaving their home countries, using the digital technologies of our Faculty!
“In mathematics, there are several ways to achieve a result — I always wonder how a student will solve a problem. And problems in computer science give more freedom of solutions, therefore computer science develops creative thinking ”, says Stanislav Strashnov, author of the modules "Mathematics“ and ”Informatics" of the Digital Preparatory Faculty of RUDN University.
The academic year at RUDN University traditionally begins on September 1. This is the first odd week of training. Classes will be held in two formats: face-to-face — in university classrooms and remotely.
