Almost a month ago, the Junior Academy of Sciences of Ukraine together with the State Polytechnic Museum at NTUU "I. Sikorsky KPI" started a new project of the family scientific and educational game. The first one was held on October 6, 2018 as a "Scientific Family", and now, to expand the audience, the name has been changed to "Intelligent Family" to include non-scientific families. Then the families of Oleksandra Miklukhina (15 years old) and Vitalina Ishchenko (11 years old) met in the competition. Vitalina's family won, so on November 10, 2018, another intellectual fight took place. There they defended the title of the most intelligent family of Ukraine to respond to Glib Andriychuk’s (12 years old) family challenge.

Competition program for teams was as usual, including scientific experiments and their explanations, an engineering game and a homework, in which the participants had to show the Pythagorean theorem in an interesting and witty way.

Physical and chemical experiments of the first stage of competition were extraordinary interesting for the spectators of the game. According to one of the members of the jury - Viktor Bakhtiyarov, who is the PhD in chemistry, the teacher of chemistry at NULES (NUBiP), the head of the "Ecology" section of the Department of Ecology and Agrarian Sciences in the Kyiv Junior Academy of Sciences, such games should be frequent and regular:

‘When children and their parents carry out tasks that require knowledge and intuition, it is a very effective for family unification.’

And one of the parents-participants said:

‘It's wonderful that children learn to explain their ideas correctly, it's kind of stage-chemical work ...’

The second stage of the game was a homework, in which the participants presented their vision of Pythagorean theorem. Family teams have prepared well: in addition to the demonstration of the theorem with kinetic sand, spectators saw a crossword and even heard a mathematical song.

Glib Andriychuk’s mother, who was enthusiastically watching the game, admitted:

‘It is very exciting to watch the children open themselves during the game: at first they are worried and a little detached, and then involve themselves in the competition passionately!’

And finally, the final engineering stage of the game took place: teams had to create a witty device that could carry carrot a few meters. And Vitalina Ishchenko’s family was the best in it, with their design, that used jet force of balloon...
