Summer Science School by SAS Students

28 august 2023

An inspiring story of an educational initiative. 

Extracurricular activities of SAS students are seamlessly integrated into the learning process — the formats of classes and final course events, participation in additional educational programs and the SAS Excellence Track, work at the Academic Writing Center, organization of exhibitions, and more. SAS students strive to unleash their potential across various domains, not confining themselves to academic achievements. They learn to overcome the boundaries of their knowledge and create unique projects.

From August 7th to 12th, the SAS campus hosted the “Sigma” Summer Science School for students in grades 7 to 11. This event was organized by our students and their friends from the University of Nizhny Novgorod (UNN), Dostoevsky Omsk State University (OmSU), as well as The SKOLKOVO and MIPT business bachelor's programs.

The students meticulously planned everything — from the topics and schedule of sessions to the gamified points system — and established a unique educational environment. The intergenerational closeness between students and participants created a comfortable learning atmosphere. School students learned to make educational decisions independently, while organizers gained valuable experience in orchestrating a large-scale event, also independently.
