support programme for gifted children is implemented in two steps: identifying the most
capable students and creating the conditions for the fulfilment of their potential, as well
as the opportunities for their professional realisation in the future (the system of "social
At the heart of the Programme's implementation is the creation of a network of
educational centres for schoolchildren in the cities where our companies have a presence.
Possible subject areas are mathematics, physics, chemistry, earth sciences, programming, and
also perhaps - astronomy, biology, technical creativity (modelling, radio electronics and
robotics, engineering, etc.). In addition to the above, a system of distance learning will
be in operation such as Academic Internet Olympiads, remote project management and possibly
distance learning courses.
On the basis of the educational centres, a system of "social lifts" is being created.
The educational centres will identify the most capable science students, who will take part
in academic Olympiads in relevant academic subjects and project competitions. The children's
successes will be recorded in a single database, which will allow us to keep a record of a
student's achievements and determine, depending on the level of success, the appropriate
degree of support this student might need.
