The competition serves the interest of young people in science and technology (STEM fields), encourages the implementation of innovative ideas and projects. Most of the participants of the competition continue their education in STEM disciplines, which we believe is extremely important for the future development of our country because it is in these fields that there is a demand for highly qualified professionals.
