Skoltech is an international graduate research-focused university that was founded by the group of world-renowned scientists in 2011. Skoltech's curriculum focuses on technology and innovation, offering Master's programs in 11 technological disciplines. Students receive rigorous theoretical and practical training, design their own research projects, participate in internships and gain entrepreneurial skills in English. The faculty is comprised of current researchers with international accreditation and achievements.

Skoltech and MIPT invite university and high school students to informal physics lectures

In-person lectures* on classical and modern physics will be held every other Monday, with a live stream at Zoom available to all registered participants (in Russian).

After each lecture, those interested will get individual physics problems to solve, send their solutions and receive expert feedback through the web platform.

20 students who display the best problem solving skills will be invited to work on practical projects in advanced experimental physics and/or try their hand at theoretical research at the Summer School in Chernogolovka.
