The meeting took place at the Fundamental Library of the Moscow State University named after M.V. Lomonosov.

“This year we showed a very good result, an excellent result, one of the best in the world. In biology, our country entered the top three, overtaking countries such as Japan, Italy and South Korea. We are the second in mathematics, also a very serious result. We have overtaken the USA, South Korea, Singapore, which in all international studies ranks first in terms of the quality of general education, ”said Sergey Kravtsov.

The minister added that at the Olympiad in Informatics, Russian schoolchildren overtook the USA, Great Britain, South Korea, and Japan.

At the second, theoretical stage, teachers will solve problems in physics, mathematics and chemistry at the level of the municipal stage of the All-Russian Olympiad for schoolchildren. At the third, practical stage, laboratory workshops await teachers of physics and chemistry, and teachers of mathematics – solving problems of the regional stage of the Higher School of Economics. In the final of the competition, which will be held in December 2020, teachers will hold master classes on the topic « Actual Science ».

The organizers of the Olympiad are the Moscow Center for the Technological Modernization of Education and the Center for Pedagogical Excellence of the Department of Education and Science of the capital.

For the sixth time, high school students are invited to take part in the All-Russian Engineering Olympiad of the Circle Movement of the National Technological Initiative (NTI).
