KazGASA students at the "Idea for a million" presentation of innovative projects
On April 25-26 “Zhas Tolgyn” competition took place in Almaty within the framework of the 5th republican “New generation is future of Kazakhstan” students’ festival. Festival is organized by the Foundation of the First President, Leader of nation of the Republic of Kazakhstan. The main purpose of this project is to involve students in the scientific field.
Representatives of seven universities from Nur-Sultan, Almaty, Aktobe, Karaganda and Pavlodar are strived for “the country’s best student team” title. Among the competition tasks of Olympiad there were presidential tests on physical training, testing in general educational disciplines, presentation of videos about students life and defense of "Idea for million" innovative projects.
Students from all over Kazakhstan came with their projects such as: national food products production, financial literacy increasing board game, a phyto wall, separate garbage collection system, website for helping low-income families, and healthy food buffet.
The main and most difficult task of the Olympiad was defenсe of innovative projects. Our team "Generators" were presented by 1-st and 2-nd course students Asylbek Kharun-Rashid, Tursynov Batyrzhan, Serzhan Mukhametzhanov, Sotsial Aishat, Saparbek Madina under the leadership of associate professor of GHTD Sydykova D.K. and assistant professor J.A. Kalybekova who presented the project “WILL - wide accessible atmospheric generator”. Among other students it is worth to mention Asylbek Harun-Rashid who was nominated as the best speaker and Tursynov Batyrzhan who set a record during the sports competition and made 220 squats.
It was not easy for our students to get used to the role of an entrepreneur or a start-upper and to defense their business project before a high level jury. But we managed - WE DID IT!!!
Our team won the 2nd place and set a goal to win the grand prix and get a million next year.
