Good news came from the Spanish city of Salamanka. A solemn ceremony of awarding the winners of the International Olympiad in Physics among the pupils was held. Among its main winners are the senior pupils from Turkmenistan Mekan Arazmedov, Islam Hydyrov and Eziz Allaberdiev who won bronze medals and diplomas.
As the Ministry of Education of Turkmenistan comments, the Turkmen team consisting of five pupils worthily represented independent and neutral Turkmenistan at the Olympiad as the country with great scientific and intellectual potential. The profound knowledge in physics and other exact sciences, preparation and talent of the Turkmen pupils were highly appreciated by the competent international jury. Certainly, it was a result of the reforms in the educational sphere the experience of participation in the similar competitions. It should be acknowledged that at present the traditions of the national mathematic school have been formed in the country. It allows the pupils to gain prizes at the international Olympiads. The success of the young biologists and chemists is greater and greater. But the success of the young physicists was not so great so it was necessary to work out new approaches of choosing and teaching the participants of the competitions. As a result, the names of the Turkmen pupils were announced among the winners in Spain.
The solemn ceremony of their honouring will be held after their coming back to Ashgabat. In 2006 the young physicists will participate in the Olympiad to be held in Singapore.
