ILS 9th grader Lev Novitsky organized the team and led it into the winners’ circle at the 1st Rector’s Cup intellectual games at Far Eastern Federal University, where 60 teams of school students, university students, and adults competed.
Over the course of nearly three hours, the teams answered a total of 36 questions on history, literature, languages, economics, art, cinematography and various other topics. In the adult and school students sub-groups, winners were decided in the opening rounds, with the Rector’s Cup contenders answering a series of additional questions. The final results were as follows: 1st place: “First place”; 2ndplace: “Shashil”; 3rd place: “Seals”.
“I do supplemental study at FEFU’s Yandex.Lyceum, and our team was put together from its students,” explains Lev. “We trained and chose our strategy for answering questions, and it worked out very well. I should also mention that in our school intellectual games, the team from my class was the winner.”
“Intellectual games requiring knowledge, erudition, resourcefulness and quick response are very popular with our students,” notes ILS Principal Olga Shevchenko. “Every year ILS holds intellectual game tournaments for students in all classes on a range of subjects including Russian and English language, literature, mathematics, physics, IT, history and social studies. The games stimulate interest in new knowledge and have a positive impact on our students’ studies. I congratulate Lev and his team on their victory and wish them every success in the future.”
