Do you remember, once in distant Soviet times, the state radio used to broadcast at 3 p.m. the exact Moscow time? “Moscow is speaking. It’s 3 p.m. in the capital… in Petropavlovsk-Kamchatsky it’s midnight.” This phrase hidden deep in the subconscious has crawled out, rather displeased, and does not leave in peace the body exhausted from jet lag. It is merely vice versa now: early in the morning while kamchadals rush brisk to work, it is exactly midnight in Moscow! That is why your living sentient being longs wholly justified for a soft warm bed by that time, and in no way for lectures. You struggle painful against this internal conflict during almost a week and, suddenly - snap, you find yourself running cheerfully towards the swimming pool. There, on the first floor, we have our classes.
10-minutes reports of the School listeners started the day. Six participants talked about the area they work in. First, Aleksandra Solodchuk (ICRR FEB RAS) presented the research of high-frequency geoacoustic emission on Kamchatka. Her colleague Vladimir Mochalov from the same Laboratory of Acoustic Research described the application of deep learning for geophysical structure identification. Dmitry Tvyerdy from the Research and Educational Centre KBRC RAS, Nalchik, explained to the listeners the Cauchy problem for Riccati equation with modified Gerasimov-Caputo fractional operator. Anastasiya Kalitkina (MSU, JINR, Dubna) outlined the application of GNA software package for modelling of neutrino long-based experiment. Guliya Sharipova from Public Budget Vocational Institution of Educational Urban Planning Complex “Stolitsa”, Moscow, emphasized that contemporary scientific discoveries and investigations should be widely covered in the physics lessons. Physics teacher Nadezhda Tukova from Nizhny Novgorod reported on the relevance of school research project for students’ individual development.
The School participants had the greatest admiration for the last two reports delivered by teachers. So much love and devotion to their job, so much care for their pupils, so much enthusiasm and motivation to learn something new and to share this knowledge!
Immediately after report session, the School participants went by bus to the Petropavlovsk-Kamchatsky’s port to take a boat trip. There was a storm at sea, but who cared? Wet clothes, seasickness, fish soup, crabs – a wide range of impressions excited all of us. This experience was shared joyfully with everyone at the dinner party on the Kamchatka School ending.
The fourth School day was over. Last lectures and the official ceremony of the Kamchatka School conclusion will take place tomorrow.
