As informed by the Belarusian university, the competition aims to enhance the youth’s interest in nuclear technology education. Thanks to a high assessment of the international jury, the video will be posted on the website of the 66th IAEA General Conference in September 2022 and presented to its participants from around the world. The team of authors will receive commemorative diplomas.

The Heuristics in Physics project involved students from the Information Communication, Radio Engineering and Electronics, Computer Systems and Networks faculties to participate in the IAEA competition: The Role of Nuclear Technologies in Solution of Climate Change Problems. This large-scale platform unites first-year students from Europe, Asia and Africa, and the Belarusian work – authored by Kira Savintseva, Kirill Pavlov and Lyubov Panfilova – was highly praised at the first stage of the contest, entering a semi-final.

The video is dedicated to commissioning of the Belarusian nuclear power plant and reveals the advantages of electrification of Belarusian transport due to cheap nuclear energy as a contribution to solving climate problems in the country and the world as a whole.
