The competition is held in two stages. The selection was held in an online format — based on its results, 59 projects of schoolchildren were accepted for the main competition, another 37 were recommended for revision.
The final live competition takes place on May 19-23 at the Mikhailovskaya Dacha campus. Liubov Ermolaeva, Assistant of the Department of Strategic and International Management at GSOM SPbU, shared her impressions of the experience of participating in the jury of the humanities track, the discussion of projects within which took place on May 20: "it was very interesting for me to listen and observe how high school students begin their research path, interact with each other in a team, present their results and answer questions. I was surprised and pleased with how boldly and reasonably they defended their projects, worthily defending their opinions, how they skillfully determined the relevance of their works (and these were projects in literature or history, for example), which, in my opinion, is difficult to do even at later stages of training. I would say that these were real researchers who have clear prospects in the scientific world who have spoken to us here,” she said.
