The distance Olympiad in information science for the pupils of general education schools starts in the Republic on October 20. The project is developed by the Ministry of education RB for already the sixth year and in 2010 the Olympiad is held at one stage and will consist of five tasks. All tasks will be placed on the site of the Ministry in the opening day.

The Ministry’s chief specialist Gulsem Yamalieva says such Olympiads are not just the way to check the pupils’ knowledge but the opportunity to find the talented children for participation in the Republican training assemblies.

“This is a sort of preparation for the all-Russian pupils’ Olympiad in information science” – she said – “And usually about 100 pupils take part in the remote competitions”.

The results of the Olympiad will be announced at the beginning of November and the winners will be rewarded with the diplomas.
