Festival of Student Science Complete at ASU

Festival of Student Science Complete at ASU

In late April 12018, Astrakhan State University was a site to demonstrate its students innovative potential. Guests of the Festival of Student Science could learn about our students numerous projects.

This event has been held for the fourth time. Our Student Scientific Council arranged it. On the first day of the Festival (April 26), the Territory of Writing & Thinking of ASU could hardly receive all the visitors. The presented exposition included 50 projects in natural sciences, technology, Physics, and Humanities; over 400 students of our University took part in their development.

The exposition was visited by reps of regional authorities and business, including people of Gazprom (the major Russian gas-recovering enterprise), who were our distinguished guests. The guests showed much interest in our R & D, which may result in productive cooperation.

On the second day of the Festival, students of Astrakhan’s secondary schools were demonstrated our developments; our potential students watched our facilities and took part in master classes, which they enjoyed. We wish they became our students in the future.

Dr. Konstantin Markelov, Acting Rector of ASU, emphasized importance of such events, as well as a large role of student science in the development of our University.
