JAS students were preparing for scientific competition at international contest

prev next

On November 1-3, 20 children who had passed the first stage of national selection for participation in the international conference of young researchers "ICYS-2019" were at the training session of the Junior Academy of Sciences. This session was initiated by Paul Pshenichka, national coordinator of ICYS in Ukraine, Ukraine and the world best teacher according to "Global Teacher Prize Ukraine" (2017).

‘Those who pass through the system of practical scientific training, become very successful people later. Because they carry out an early start, and this is very important in scientific life, as in sports or art. When these children come to the first year of the university, they already have two years of practice. And this is a colossal personal growth’ - Paul Frantsovych said.

According to Natalia Polikhun, coordinator of the scientific school, it was important for the participants to understand that they came there not to the competitive examination but to the training. After all, Natalia knows very well about team spirit and it’s role in international competitions. So, the purpose of these three training days for children was to make friends with each other, to form one team in which each participant supports another and gets help if necessary.

JAS students return home after the world olympiads with high rewards and impressive results. A good example of this experience is the JAS graduate Valentyn Frechka who won the "ICYS-2018" and "Genius Olimpiad 2018". So Valentyn was invited to school as a trainer and told others about the pecularities of participation in international competitions and about preparing for them.

Study of potential participants of international competitions was focused on the development of the most important skills: knowledge of English, ability to present a project and mastering scientific methods. The rich training program provided lectures, workshops, intellectual games and quests, and seminars. For exemple, unobtrusive improvement of English took place on the Skype lesson about Great Britain held by Oxford professor Andrew Sommerville. Nadiya Mosyakina, coordinator of the “INTEL ISEF” competition on schoolchildren scientific and technical creativity, taught children how to present their works. She explained that science should be simple, and when convincing someone, it is better to use facts, not emotions.

All young people who came to study at the three-day JAS school, are already worthy to defend the country's honor at international competitions. For example, the results of the scientific work of the Kyiv JAS student Yevgeniya Anastasia Rudyk can once be used in aircraft design (the girl studied the isosceles triangles, circumscribed the curvilinear crescent biangles):

‘I listened to the presentation of other works, and I was very pleased that I am here. Because of the school I understand what level of responsibility lies with the participants of international competitions.’

All the participants of the "ICYS-2019" examination have a lot of work to do. Despite only few students will go Malaysia in April 2019, but the knowledge gained at the school of preparation for international competitions can be applied at any time. And the Junior Academy of Sciences always contributes to the participation of its students in world contests.
