UrFU invites grades 5-11 to compete in sciences, mathematics competition

Ural Federal University and the Higher School of Economics and Management recently invited students from grades five through 11 to compete in a competition in mathematics, social science and economics later this month.

The event will be held on Sept. 22 and Sept. 29, and participants can pre-register online.

Success at the event will require deliberate, systematic training that goes beyond the school program, according to organizers. The goal of the event is to teach children the abilities to self-reflect and analyze, rather than memorize information.

Winners will receive a certificate for free training in mathematics, economics, social sciences and physics.

The competition has a wide network of corporate partners who have signed long-term agreements for programs of cooperation and professional advancement for students. One such company is PricewaterhouseCoopers, which is offering training in the world of business as a prize for the competition.
