“Research in Natural Sciences” scientific camp

“Research in Natural Sciences” scientific camp was held on August 26-28, in Yerevan State University(YSU) Guesthouse in Tsaghkadzor. 50 participants from different disciplines (e.g. Physics, Biology, Computer Science) were chosen.

The program of the camp contained scientific and personal development oriented workshops and lectures. Various intellectual and sport games were offered as well. The workshops were interactive with experimental demonstrations. A special lecture “From the fundamental science to successful business project” was delivered by Gohar Hovhannesyan, presenter of “PPT-Plasma Physics and Technologies” startup.

At the end of the program campers were offered to present their own research projects. On the final stage, the campfire was set and a special party dedicated to partnership of YSU SSS and OSA YSU and NAS’s student chapter took place.

“This year I entered the Faculty of Physics, YSU. The lectures were especially helpfulfor those that desire to continue their scientific career. I hope the camping will continue next year!”, mentioned camper Armine Alexanyan.

Theoretical part of the camp was mainly concerned on concepts of the physics, with accent on applications of optics in different fields of physics. Participants had opportunity to take part theoretical and experimental sections, held by professors and young scientists.

In practical part of the camp participants were separated into 6 groups and studied robotics, rocket engineering, programing languages, program packets and tools that are used in physics.

Participation in scientific camp “Physics and We” was free of charge. Transportation from Yerevan to the camp place (Byurakan rest house of Yerevan State University) and opposite direction was covered by organizers.

Scientific camp was organized by OSA (The Optical Society) YSU and NAS’s student chapter in collaboration with YSU SSS (Student Scientific Society) and  SPIE (The International Society for Optics and Photonics) YSU and NAS’s student chapter. This camp is dedicated to centennial of OSA and is founded by OSA as Centennial Special Celebration Event Grant.
