Schools Challenge for future engineers

This year, Nazarbayev University was a co-organizer of the Republican contest “Nazarbayev Fund Schools Challenge”. This competition is for school children of Kazakhstan, and focuses on Engineering and technical sciences.

Earlier in the year, 100 teams with 500 members competed at the regional round.  From this round, 17 teams, made up of 85 participants advanced to the final round of the competition, which took place on July 17.  Finalists presented their projects to a jury which included a notable member, Anarbek Utegulov, who is the program head of ABC Incubation (NURIS).  The grand prize for this competition is an exciting education trip happening this August to Cranfield University (UK) – one of the leading universities in the world in the field of aerospace design and development of “green” technologies.  This trip will be awarded not only to the winning team, but to two lucky students from each of the other 16 finalist teams.
