This year, the regional stage of the All-Russian Olympiad for schoolchildren was held on January 23 and 25.
For pupils of grades 9-11, the regional stage of the All-Russian Olympiad in physics for schoolchildren in the Republic of Karelia took place, and for students in grades 7-8 – the regional stage of the Olympiad for schoolchildren in physics named after J. Maxwell.
Traditionally, the regional stage of the Olympiad is held in two rounds – theoretical and experimental. Given the epidemiological situation associated with the spread of coronavirus infection, this year both rounds were organized without an experiment. The tasks of both rounds contained 3 theoretical problems and one “experimental” one. The experimental problems described the experiment and contained the data obtained as a result of its formulation.
The event is organized by the Karelian Institute for the Development of Education, on its site all tests for schoolchildren passed.
Teachers of the Physics and Technology Institute traditionally act as members of the jury at the Olympiad. These are the chairman of the expert commission E.V. Moshkina, members of the commission A.I. Nazarov, O.V. Oleshchuk, A.A. Platonov, E.M. Teteleva, as well as a physics teacher at Gymnasium No. 30 I.R. Tevel.
The task of the jury members was to evaluate and analyze the work of students, which is not easy when it comes to non-standard solutions. This year, 30 people from the city of Petrozavodsk and the Republic of Karelia took part in the Physics Olympiad. The tasks were difficult and not everyone coped with them, but experts believe:
Winning the Olympiad is not the main thing, the main thing is participation! Trying, looking for solutions and not being afraid to make mistakes are important qualities!
