Syria participates in the Asian Mathematics Olympiad

Damascus (ST):  Students of the Syrian Scientific Olympiad participated in the Asian Mathematics Olympiad 2021. The tests were conducted "remotely" over a period of four continuous hours at the same time in the participating countries and included high-level questions in algebra and engineering, according to Nobog Yassin, Director of the Syrian Scientific Olympiad at the Excellence and Creativity Authority, indicating that the Syrian team participated in the competitions from the Ebla Al-Sham Hotel and the Umayyad Palace for the conferences and it included 28 male and female students from different governorates.

 Yassin explained that participation in this Olympiad has a special importance, as it is based on trust and scientific honesty, as the Scientific Committee of the Asian Olympiad sends the question form to the participating countries, and in turn the Central Scientific Committee for Mathematics in the Syrian Scientific Olympiad translates the questions and prepares them to be printed and saved, and they are not disclosed until the start of the test, indicating that the Asian Olympiad is the strongest international competition after the World Olympiad, and its tests simulate the standard and style followed internationally.

The participation in the Asian Olympiad is considered an important preparatory station for the Syrian Olympiad team, as part of its preparations to participate in the World Mathematics Olympiad that will be organized by Russia next summer. During its participation in the Asian Mathematics Olympiad last year, the Syrian team achieved five bronze medals and five certificates of appreciation.

Supporting investment in renewable energy in Syria an urgent need for production sectors: experts

Expanding investment in renewable energies in Syria is an urgent need to secure alternatives for fossil energy sources which are currently needed by different sectors of production and which are witnessing a decline as a result of the systematic destruction of energy resources by terrorists in addition to the unjust economic blockade imposed on the Syrian people. 

The Syrian University of Tarous has made significant strides in this regard. It has carried out research works relating to benefitting from all kinds of renewable energies based on studying the economic feasibility of any project, according to Dr. Maysaa Shash, Dean of the Faculty of Technical Engineering at the University.

Shash told SANA that there is an urgent need to fund alternative energy projects at the university, disseminate the culture of using this kind of energy and link between scientific studies and social situation on the ground, noting the role that can be played by the private sector and concerned ministries in this respect.

Shash attributed the lack of investment in renewable energies to the difficult conditions that resulted from the terrorist war on Syria, since this kind of investment needs courageous steps by the joint sector.
