In November 2011 the X anniversary All-Russia student's Olympiad on
Electronics in conjunction with Conference of students, post-graduates
and young researches "Electronic Devices, Systems and Technologies"
was held. The Olympiad are annually take place in National Research
Tomsk Polytechnic University at support of Tomsk Joint Chapter and
Student Branch of IEEE.
For the first time at the Olympiad the youth marathon with Snap
Circuits' kits gratuitously provided by Electron Devices Society IEEE
took place. Five commands competed in high-speed design and creation
industrial automatics circuits of different complexity.
Two student teams have successfully decided problems – "Pofigistors" and "Lamp & Diodes". You have fun transferring title of the first team
from Russian. There was only one girl and four guys in the second team.
The highlight of the Marathon was that Pofigistors team has carried out
circuit far outside of mockup plate. In process of "transportation" to
table of jury the circuit was repeatedly scattered and materialized again.
Participants have been very impressed with ElencoSnap kits. Great successof the contest has surpassed all previous for 10 years.We
have more ideas for use Snap kits at contests and conferences of
students and scholars. Many thanks for ED-S and personally Renuka
Jindal for a brilliant idea with Snap kits and its realization within
frameworks of future projects of the IEEE units in Tomsk.
