From May 31 to June 6, a week of summer intensives was held by the Kharkiv National University of Radio Electronics for students of the boarding school “Giftedness”. The event was attended by 89 students, 48 students studied computer science, and 41 students – mathematics. Of these: 29 eighth graders, 24 ninth graders and 36 tenth graders. Classes were held every day at the lyceum. Thus, the topics of cycles, one-dimensional and two-dimensional arrays were studied in depth in computer science, and many Olympiad problems on the topics of probability theory, conditional probability, game theory and problems with parameters were analyzed in mathematics. Twice a week, on the basis of the laboratory “GameDev lab” of the Department of Software Engineering of Kharkiv National University of Radio Electronics, students got acquainted with 3D modelling and game creation.
On the final day of classes for students was held an individual Olympiad in computer science and a tournament for young mathematicians. The winners were awarded certificates and gifts from sponsors.
Snap Inc. became the main sponsor of the summer intensives for the boarding lyceum “Giftedness”, which contributes to the progress of mankind, providing an opportunity to express themselves and enjoy communication, learning about the world around them. The company is expanding the limits of what is possible on mobile devices, going far beyond the flagship configurations, making innovations available to a wide audience of users.
In Ukraine, there is an official office of Snap, which employs more than 300 people. The company actively supports the Olympic movement in Ukraine. Yuriy Monastyrshyn, a 2014 and 2015 ICPC finalist and senior development director at Snap, believes that programming competitions develop very valuable teamwork skills and non-standard tasks. By the way, in 2021, two talented students of KNURE have already become part of this team.
Within the framework of cooperation of the boarding lyceum “Giftedness” with the Kharkiv National University of Radio Electronics, teachers of the Department of Software Engineering were involved in conducting classes on certain topics: senior lecturer Yuri Novikov, assistant Dmitry Matveev and students: Stanislav Kachanov, Dmitry Rudenko Kupriyanov and Kirill Chernov. Associate Professor Natalia Rusakova and Assistant Professor Kateryna Zybina dealt with organizational issues of cooperation with the lyceum. Oleksandr Vechur, Associate Professor of the Department of Software Engineering at KNURE, was an expert consultant.
