On August 26, the preliminary stage of the Olympiad in Mathematics, Chemistry and Physics “Precise Energy 2022” is completed. More than 7000 schoolchildren and students from Tamil Nadu and Pondicherry participated in the Olympiad with great enthusiasm.

The Olympiad stimulates an interest in a study of technical scientific disciplines which are important for the specialization in nuclear energy, promotes the popularization of science and technology, as well as an encouragement of talented youth of the educational institutions of Tamil Nadu.

"We fully support the interest of young people in science and technology, because an educated young generation is the key to the prosperity of any country," said Andrey Shevlyakov, CEO of the Rosatom South Asia Regional Center.

"The state Tamil Nadu was chosen to host the Olympiad not by chance. Tamil Nadu is not only the region of the construction of the Kudankulam NPP – the most important Russian-Indian energy project, but also the birthplace of a large number of talented guys," said Nina Dementsova, Head of Communications Department of Atomstroyexport JSC (Rosatom Engineering Division).

The preliminary stage of the Olympiad started on August 24 at the sites of the leading educational institutions of Tamil Nadu. In total, more than 75 schools, universities and colleges from 5 cities of Tamil Nadu participated in the Olympiad.

"I would like to mention great enthusiasm and readiness of Indian educational institutions to participate in Russian educational projects. It would be impossible to hold such a large-scale Olympiad as "Precise Energy" without their help and assistance", said Gennadiy Rogalev, The Director of the Russian House in Chennai.

The best performing students from the first round will be selected for the final stage, which will be held in Chennai in autumn 2022. The top 3 students in each discipline will be awarded with valuable prizes.

The Olympiad "Precise Energy" is traditionally held by the Engineering Division of Rosatom State Corporation together with ANO Energy of Future in the partnership with the Russian House in Chennai, Moscow Engineering Physics Institute and Tamil Nadu Science and Technology Centre.

Holding the Olympiad "Precise Energy" has become a good tradition. For the first time this successful project was organized in 2020 and aroused a great interest among young people – more than 3,000 students took part in it.
