Physics and Mathematics Olympiad Steps
In 2001, the Foundation supported the organization of the All-Ukrainian Physics and Mathematics Olympiad Steps. The intellectual competition took place at the Department of Physics and Technology, at the National Technical University of Kyiv Polytechnic Institute. The winners of the Olympiad became students of this university.
By providing comprehensive support to talented youth, the Foundation supports the idea of integration; that is, “connecting” each student either to a company or to a research laboratory with internships from the beginning of their studies. Thus, the students` academic knowledge is supplemented with practical knowledge, while companies are interested in hiring young professionals, who are already trained for a specific project or in a related field.
