EEYF meets its first guests: a meeting of high school students with USUE Rector Yakov Silin.
The geography of the forum is wide: children came from Tashkent, Karaganda, Petropavlovsk, Bishkek, and other cities. The delegation from Uzbekistan participates in the forum for the first time.
The meeting with school students was attended by the USUE Rector Yakov Silin, director of the Congress of High School Students Irina Martyanova, and Vice-Rector for Academic Affairs Sergei Rogozhin.
Yakov Silin greeted the participants of the forum and thanked them for the visit, "Thank you for your papers and visit. The participation in such a major event as the IX Eurasian Economic Forum of Youth is bold, wise, and right! "
At the meeting with school students who came to defend their projects, it was stressed that the forum was created precisely for the youth. To become a scientist, you need to successfully finish the school, and the forum is a platform that helps determine the scope of future activities.
As the USUE Rector noted, "There are very many universities in Yekaterinburg and, consequently, there are many young people, who study in our country. At the forum, the participants of the Congress of High School Students have a unique opportunity to present their projects, exchange experiences and establish cooperation between schools, colleges, and leading universities."
The official opening of IX EEYF will be held tomorrow, April 17. Participants from 64 countries and 69 regions will come to USUE, which underlines the international status of the event.
"Within the framework of the EEYF, we can strengthen our cooperation and already established relations. In our University, there are many students from Kazakhstan, Uzbekistan, and Kyrgyzstan. The largest number is from Kyrgyzstan. We are trying to strengthen the friendship among nations because it is very important for all students," Yakov Silin said.
After the meeting with the USUE Rector, high school students were introduced to the interactive grounds of the IX EEYF and invited to go on an excursion around Yekaterinburg.
