The first winners of the program to support gifted children -Zhas Kyran from Air Astana- spoke about their international achievements.

Owing to participation in the project, Arthur Kim, an 11th grade student at the Bilim-Innovation Lyceum from Aktobe, won a bronze medal at the 7th European Physics Olympiad in Hannover. “The trip to the Physics Olympiad was very important for me because it has provided me with valuable experience of participation in such serious competitions. I want to enter a prestigious university to make independent discoveries in science. Many thanks to Air Astana for helping me make my dream come true,” noted Arthur.

Matvey Rybalkin, an 11th grade student at school No. 54 from Almaty, took second place at the World Robotics Competition in Beijing. “I’ve been doing robotics for many years. And Air Astana helped me use a chance to perform at an international contest. Participation in international competitions allows to share experience in technical aspect. At the republican contests in Kazakhstan, I showed the best result, and my participation in Beijing gave me a merely tremendous experience, showed me the area for improvement and development in robotics,” said Matvey.

Diana Tynyshtyk, an 8th grade student at school No. 9 “Zerde” for gifted children from Astana, received the title of candidate for international master of sports at the 10th International Chess Festival in Prague. “In August, thanks to the Zhas Kyran project, I made a trip to the Czech Republic for 2 chess tournaments. Participation in them allowed me to rise to the rank of candidate for international master of sports. I also entered the top 20 strongest chess players of Kazakhstan. The trip filled me with incredible impressions of architecture, culture, communication with chess players from different countries, gave me sports experience and achievements, supported me in further professional development. Many thanks Air Astana for helping the talented children of Kazakhstan — you really gave us wings,” Diana shared her impressions.
