The winners of the international space Olympics have been decided

October 28, 2017

The results of the jubilee 25th International Space Olympics dedicated to the 60th anniversary of the launch of first artificial satellite of Earth have been announced in Korolev near Moscow.

Traditionally, the main organizer of the Olympics was RSC Energia, which devotes much attention to attracting young people to space industry. The International Space Olympics is one of the key vocational guidance projects of Energia.

Competing in it were 160 students aged 14 to 17 from Russia, Belarus and Bulgaria. For the first time taking part in the Olympics were students from all the towns of science of the Moscow province.

The Olympics program included educational and learning stages. The contestants defended their creative projects related to space exploration, and underwent tests in physics, math, natural science, computer science and literature. Organized for the kids were tours of RSC Energia museum and MCC, where a live communications session was held with the International Space Station (ISS). Cosmonauts and leading specialists of the Corporation gave master classes.

The projects of participants in the Olympics were judged by panel of competent judges which included doctors and candidates of sciences, employees of Energia and other space companies of Korolev, best teachers in the town of science.

Three first medal places went to the pupils of Korolev Science and Engineering Lyceum for high achievements in the intellectual competitions of the 25th International Space Olympics of schoolchildren.

The first place went to a 9th grade student Alexander Gavrilin, a winner of the creative round, math and computer science Olympics, a runner-up of the physics Olympics.
The second place went to an 11th grade student Nikita Konodyuk, a winner of the creative round, a runner-up of the math, computer science and physics Olympics.

The third place went to a 9th grade student Uliana Mityusheva, a runner-up of the creative round, and of the math, physics and literature Olympics.

The winners and runners-up of the Space Olympics will get recommendations for admission to technical universities under the program of RSC Energia-sponsored training.

Representatives of aerospace agencies NASA, ESA and JAXA, who attended the Olympics spoke highly of the level of the effort.
 
- The Space Olympics in Korolev are one-of-a-kind in the world, - said Susumi Yoshitomi, member of the Japanese delegation, a veteran of the Japan Aerospace Exploration Agency JAXA. - Olympics for individual subjects are known to everybody, but these Olympics are the only one which cover various disciplines, and thus promoting an all-round development of the children.

Within the framework of the Olympics there was a signing of an agreement on cooperation of Energia with Lyceum – Engineering Center (Kazan) and International Space School (Baikonur) within the framework of the system for continuous corporate personnel training “School-University-Company”. The parties have agreed to opening aerospace classes in the next academic year. These will become the third and the fourth such classes opened with Energia support. The second one was organized this academic year in the lyceum sponsored by the Tomsk Polytechnic University.  The first one was established last year in Gymnasium No.11 (Korolev). The Aerospace Class is also a very important career-guidance project of Energia Corporation.

The kids have very positive impressions of their participation in the Olympics.

- At the Space Olympics I presented the project “Development of the Flying Test Bed of the Lunar Ascent-Descent Complex”. I started working on it together with other kids back at “Sirius” during the space session, which was held there this summer by Energia Corporation, - said Alexander Galamich from Moscow. - It took me a long time to choose what I was going to do in the future: aviation or space. This year I’ve made my choice. Thanks to a successful project review at Camp Sirius I became entitled to sponsored education and I intend in the future to take a job with Energia Corporation.

- It’s the first time I take part in these Olympics. It’s very interesting here! – says Tatiana Likhacheva from Gymnasium No.9 of Korolev. – My project “A Hero of Our Time Oleg Kononenko” in the category “Popularization of Spaceflight” took the first place. I got acquainted with the cosmonaut at school during a meeting with the students where I was the moderator and asked questions and he told many interesting stories. This inspired me to create this project. I have not shown him my work, but I’m going to call him now, to brag about it!

- It’s the first time I take part in these Olympics. My project was dedicated to constructing an extraterrestrial outpost taking a lunar station as an example, - said Alexei Zenkovich from the Science and Engineering Lyceum of Korolev. - I fell short by one point of becoming a runner-up in the Physics Olympics,  and by two points in Literature Olympics. I did better last year: I won in projects, and was a runner-up in literature. But never mind,  next year I’ll be the first for sure!

Everything was very interesting and well organized, - shared his impressions Damir Kazizulin from Kazan. - My project to develop a timer for response to a light signal in Robotics category placed second.
