On 26 May, pupils of 2B class from Chernonog school No. 73 took part in the project by Voronezh State University “Science for Children. Children for Science.” The children were shown university classrooms, the gym, the library, and the exhibition of rocks at the Faculty of Geology.
During the guided tour at the Professor Barabash-Nikiforov Zoology Museum, the guests listened to Elena Seredina, the leading engineer from Department of Zoology and Parasitology of the Faculty of Biomedical Sciences, who told them about the museum fauna collection comprised of over two thousand exhibits. The schoolchildren were present at the opening ceremony of the exhibition “Kaleidoscope of Genres: Wool and More”. They also visited the VSU History Museum and Book Museum.
Angelika Makarova, the main guardian of the collections of the History Museum and VSU scientific achievements, told the children about the past and the present of the university and about the most unusual developments of the VSU scientists. The guests were especially amazed by the story about the innovative project “Solid Water”.
“Children are interested in everything to do with advanced technology, computers, and robotics. Most of all they liked a model nuclear plant control unit,” said Elvira Markaryan, the curator of the project and an academic affairs specialist from the Department of Pre-university Education at VSU.
