Young Kharkiv Physicist in Geneva

A graduate of Kharkiv School No. 132 Daniella Hlezina was one of 19 Ukrainians who took part in scientific school on physics in Switzerland in 2017.

The school was held for the fifth time by the Minor Academy of Sciences of Ukraine and the European Organization for Nuclear Research (CERN), on June 19 to 23.

The participants were the students of the Minor Academy of Sciences of Ukraine who won the Academy physics contest in 2017 and also demonstrated fluency in English.

17-year-old Daniella Hlezina took third place in the all-Ukrainian contest. Now, the young scientist is going to enter the Physics department of the Vasyl Karazin Kharkiv National University.

For five days, the participants of the scientific school got acquainted with the promising directions of scientific research in the field of high energy physics, attended lectures on elementary particle physics, were involved in physical experiments in CERN and the University of Geneva. They also took part in the discussions with some leading scientists of the European Organization for Nuclear Research.

Reference: Ukrainian teachers and students have had the opportunity to attend CERN since 2011, after signing the joint declaration on the participation of Ukrainians in the Swiss scientific institution curriculum.
