Gazprom Pererabotka Blagoveshchensk helps Yukhta village school in Svobodnensky district with digital physics laboratory
The secondary school in the village of Yukhta in the Svobodnensky district of the Amur region now has a state-of-the-art digital physics laboratory. Gazprom Pererabotka Blagoveshchensk acting as the investor, owner and operator of the Amur Gas Processing Plant (GPP) offered its charitable assistance to this company-sponsored school.
«It will be much more interesting for you to study physics and do experiments using this new digital laboratory. I am confident that there are students at this school whose interest in physics will lead them to dedicated universities, and then they will come to us at the Amur GPP as certified professionals,» Sergey Marshansky, Deputy Director General for Human Resources at Gazprom Pererabotka Blagoveshchensk, addressed the students.
The new laboratory was tested by the Yukhta high school students at an open lesson. The students of this village school will now be able to do research with measuring the speed of sound and the length of the sound wave, determining the thickness of an aluminum coating that absorbs 99% of radioactive beta radiation, establishing patterns in overturning a solid body, and dozens of other experiments.
«The new laboratory will allow the children not only to master theory, but also to develop their practical skills. This is a modern software that contains all the necessary tools for their research. It has a function to select data and export them to external spreadsheet editors for further processing. We are grateful to our partners at Gazprom Pererabotka Blagoveshchensk for their help,» says Irina Tsemenya, head of Yukhta school.
«Not every school has equipment like that. Such projects are very useful for our children, since it is easier for them to decide on the choice of their further profession. The students are showing interest in getting enrolled in Gazprom class, as well as universities and colleges with physics and chemistry as their core disciplines,» says Irina Shindorikova, head of the Education Management Department in the Svobodnensky district.
Thanks to the help from Gazprom Pererabotka Blagoveshchensk LLC, the equipment in the chemistry, physics and computer science classrooms has been modernized, a robotics hobby club has opened, and sports equipment has been provided during the last three years of such partnership at the school of the village of Yukhta located in close proximity to the Amur GPP. A modern stadium has been built on the school grounds under the Gazprom for Children program.
