The Summer Education School, which took place in Moscow region from June 9 to June 17, has concluded its activities. Over the week, students from various regions across Russia participated in practical exercises and master classes. They also attended lectures delivered by faculty members from the country s leading universities, as well as by professionals and experts in financial security.
The Summer School was jointly organized by the Lebedev Physical Institute of the Russian Academy of Sciences (LPI RAS) and the Financial University under the Government of the Russian Federation, with the support of the Federal Financial Monitoring Service and ITMCFM.
The educational curriculum for the 8th-10th grade students included lectures and seminars on subjects like "Mathematics," "Probability Theory," "Combinatorics," "Ontology," "Financial Intelligence," and "Fraud Triangle", etc. Furthermore, the pupils actively participated in specialized master classes and business games, gaining practical experience on the Graphus gaming platform, a training system designed for conducting financial investigations.
Participating students represented different regions of the Russian Federation. Senior pupils came from Moscow, Moscow and Rostov regions, Lugansk and Donetsk People s Republics, Sevastopol, the Republic of Crimea, as well as Zaporozhye and Kherson regions. To optimize the learning experience, the students were randomly grouped into teams, ensuring an exchange of knowledge and skills among peers with different strengths. This arrangement facilitated extensive learning through interactive play and mutual learning.
Vladimir Glotov, the Head of the Center of Inter Olympiad Training at LPI RAS, underscored the significance and necessity of hosting such educational schools:
"We have now successfully completed the training event for Russian schoolchildren. Similar schools are organized in other member countries of the Eurasian Group on Combating Money Laundering and Financing of Terrorism. Presently, it is crucial to harmonize the methodology of teaching financial literacy. It is an essential measure to enhance the educational standards in the realm of financial security across EAG member states."
