On October 12, a regional platform of the VIII All-Russian Science Festival “Science 0+” was organized on the basis of the SWSU, which was attended by hundreds of students and teachers from various universities of Kursk, schoolchildren and just citizens who are interested in innovations of science and technology.
Foreign students of the preparatory faculty with the curators and teachers of the department of Russian Language and General Educational Disciplines for International Students were also guests of the Science Festival. They were able to familiarize themselves with the latest scientific and technical developments, to see scientific shows, quests, master classes, quizzes, excursions and much more. Particularly they were impressed with their communication session with the ISS. Great interest among foreigners was caused by regional competitions in robotics and bridge building among students.
Thus, the All-Russian Science Festival “Science 0+” became for foreign students a kind of career-guidance platform, because it gave the opportunity to get acquainted with activities of different faculties of the South-West State University, and this will help them in their future choice of a future profession.
