“Each year, representatives of our regions actively participate in the Olympiad. Many of them ultimately achieve good results. We are very pleased that young people show a lively, sincere interest in energy.

The All-Russian Olympiad for schoolchildren of Rosseti’s group of companies has been held since 2018 to identify gifted, capable of technical creativity and innovative thinking high school students planning their professional activities in the electricity industry, involving them in the development of advanced infrastructure and technological projects relevant for the electric grid complex of the Russian Federation.
This year, in view of the difficult epidemiological situation, the first stage of the Olympiad was held in a remote format. Its participants were more than 600 schoolchildren from 20 regions of activity of Rosseti Centre and Rosseti Centre and Volga Region. The children were asked to complete assignments in physics, mathematics and computer science. As a result, 77 students from the regions where the energy companies were present were admitted to the second stage.
It took place in absentia. The young people performed complex tasks (cases) aimed at testing creative capabilities and the ability to apply existing knowledge in the above disciplines in the course of solving applied problems in the electric power industry. 58 students from the regions of Rosseti Centre and Rosseti Centre and Volga Region were able to successfully complete the tasks. The winners and prize winners included those who scored the highest points.
