Kazakhstan has entered the top ranking countries based on the quality of mathematics and science training. Kazakhstan is ranked 7th in the international rating TIMSS, outperforming the U.S., England, Germany, Australia and other countries. This was announced by the chief of the Informational Analytical Center Serik Irsaliev. He said the Kazakh students significantly improved performances compared to the study of 2011. An international study TIMSS is held every four years. It includes the school students of the fourth and eighth grades. The study allows evaluating the level of their science and math training. In total, the project involves more than 60 countries.

 

Serik IRSALIEV, PRESIDENT, INFORMATION-ANALYTICS CENTER:

Basic schools and their students participate in the study. The eighth grade students showed especially good knowledge in mathematics. In 2011, we held the 17th position, and now climbed by 10 positions. We raised our scores by 41. No country has demonstrated such dynamic progress.

 

In general, this year, Kazakh school students won more than 1,000 awards at major international competitions. About 200 of them are gold medals. Recently, the young gifted students have won 12 first places in world competitions in the mental arithmetic in Dubai.

 

Ilyas TOHTARHAN, SCHOOL STUDENT OF CENTRAL ECONOMIC SCHOOL:

It was not too hard for me to solve the tasks. A year ago, I graduated from UCMAS. It is a school of mental arithmetic. I can make all kinds of mathematical equations.

 

Kazakhstani students are actively participating in robotics contests as well. Thus, Astana school students presented a unique project for garbage processing at the international competition in India. This invention won the republican robotics competition. According to the developers Aldiyar Zhangulov and Sultan Nasyrov, their project is not only environmentally friendly, but also cost effective, because they offer to re-use processed organic waste as fertilizers. It took several months for school students to develop the project.  

 

Aldiyar ZHANGULOV, PROJECT AUTHOR, STUDENT, NAZARBAYEV INTELLECTUAL SCHOOL:

These facilities have already been used in the U.S. and in Kazakhstan, but we noticed that they do not use organic materials, they use glass. However, in everyday life organics are used often, so we have added organics and removed the glass. Thus, the facility will produce more fertilizers. It is cost-effective.
