“SUMMER SCHOOL OF ENTERTAINING SCIENCES” FINISHED AT THE TSPU
During the summer holidays, students of 7-8 grades from Tomsk schools attended classes of the Summer School of Entertaining Sciences in Tomsk State Pedagogical University. The Summer School’s program included studies in physics, mathematics, computer science, and astronomy. At Astronomy lessons, the guys made a “space journey”, at Physics - they got acquainted with the amazing properties of liquids, solved scientific sharades, launched self-made boomerangs and solved experimental tasks. A lesson in Math was organized in a way of imaginary sea adventure, in which children “ploughed seas” of logical tasks and effortlessly revealed “Secrets of Numbers”. At computer science lesson, students learned what cryptography is and learned how to encrypt information.
”In addition, the participants of the School visited the Museum of Information Technology of the TSPU, where they got acquainted with the history of personal computers and other technical devices. On the excursion, the children got a chance to look at the numerous exhibits reflecting the main milestones in the development of computing technology, in particular, an adding machine, a plotter, Yamaha PC models and much more. According to the tradition the “Summer School of Entertaining Sciences” ended with the fascinating quest “In Search of Sacred Knowledge”.
