Muscovites discover the world at RUDN Science Festival
Talented students and teachers of RUDN helped the guests of the Festival do virtual surgery, crash a frozen rose with a hammer, learn the lyrics of the popular song «Despacito», take fingerprints and write their names in 12 languages.
The Festival is usually held in 2 stages – first the faculties make up programs and invite guests on Friday. At the Faculty of Science they spoke about Big Data technology and nanochemistry. Specialists of the Philological Faculty taught to make efficient pitch presentations and explained the origin of cities and streets’ names. The Faculty of Humanitarian and Social Sciences organized a meeting with K.Abramov who spoke about public opinion surveys during the last 30 years. Experts of the Agrarian and Technological Institute talked about the new global soil map and satellites in agriculture. Each faculty, institute and academy was a site for best projects.
The main event of the Festival was the Fair of all faculties in the main building featuring all the brightest episodes. Research was made into a show and the guests were happy to make their own discoveries.
A mathematician from RUDN University developed a matrix representation of set functions. This approach is vivid and easy to check, and it makes the calculations easier. Among other things, the new development can be applied to cooperative game theory.
