According to the rules participants performed in four different sections based on the results of the previous toss-up. The contestants of NIS Karaganda team competed with strong participants from Serbia, Novosibirsk and Moscow.
As a result NIS Karaganda students were awarded with the 3rd degree diploma. Although the competitions were team-based, each of the participants contributed greatly to the successful performance of whole team under the guidance of Chemistry teacher Nikolskaya N.I. It has been the first experience for students in international competition. Students had opportunity to deepen their knowledge in Chemistry, apply public speaking, critical and creative thinking skills.
We wish our students and their teacher further success on International arena!
