"UNIVERSITY SHESSIONS" at the TSPU: A GREAT JOURNEY THROUGH THE BIG UNIVERSITY OF TOMSK
It is known in Russia and far beyond that Tomsk is a city of students: there are six universities on its territory, which, together with research institutes, are united in the Big Tomsk University. The schoolchildren from the Lugansk People's Republic visited these universities on the new day of the "University shessions" at the Tomsk State Pedagogical University.
Each university told about its most interesting structures, educational opportunities and realization of student potential regardless of the profile of the university or the chosen direction of training.
Thus, at the Tomsk State University (TSU), students had a tour inside the I.K. Bazhenov Mineralogical Museum of the Tomsk State University (TSU) and saw the natural history exhibition with a collection of minerals; visited the TSU History Museum; looked at the collection of the first land plants - psilophytes and the exhibition of reconstructed skeletons of the main representatives of the Pleistocene fauna in the Paleontological Museum named after V.A. Khakhlov.
At the Tomsk Polytechnic University (TPU), guys also visited the museums, learned how the Youth Policy Center works, and became guests of the exhibition center "Science and Education at the TPU: Traditions and Innovations", which displays "Integrated Arctic Shelf Research", "Space", "Big Data", "Special People", "Industrial Tomography and Nondestructive Testing" and other exhibitions.

Employees of the university presented the technology of printing with conductive silver ink. At the Faculty of Information Technology, the participants of the shift were able to interact with the robotic arm using the programs "High Five" and "Greetings".
At the Tomsk State University of Architecture and Construction the guests from the LNR were welcomed by the rector Viktor Alekseevich Vlasov.
"I was born in Donbass, in Gorlovka, do you know such a place? - The head of the university addressed the children. - When you graduate, come to Tomsk, we have good universities, good professions. And it's safe here".
In the Tomsk State University of Architecture and Construction the students also met with representatives of the admission committee, learned about current educational programs that they can apply for after graduation in their home country.
Concluding the dialogue, the guys took a creative workshop and created a charm doll to remember the emotions of a warm evening and return to them when they look at it.
