The faculties of Biology, Mathematics and Mechanics, Chemistry, Philosophy and Psychology, the institutes of Pharmacy and Physics, and the Artificial Intelligence Laboratory "AI Lab" presented themselves at the YSU booth.
The great interest and activity shown by the visitors around the YSU booth were continuous on all days of the exhibition. The visitors had the opportunity to see through VR (virtual reality) glasses the scientific experiments previously performed by YSU scientists, got acquainted with the educational programs offered by the university, the process of organizing education at the university, laboratory equipment, and the opportunities provided by them, as well as received answers to their questions.
The visitors were particularly impressed by the nanostructured sensors that detect low concentrations of hydrogen prepared by YSU scientists, the material creation process presented by chemists, the latest achievements in machine learning, as well as the tests and analyses conducted by psychologists. The attendees witnessed how YSU biologists study biological samples with a phase contrast microscope. Apart from all that, the university students observed the antioxidant and anti-radical properties of various Armenian herbs and plants using the colorimetric method.
The attendees also showed great interest in YSU STEM School, asking questions about the school's admission, organization of the course, educational direction, curriculum and subject programs, teachers, etc. The STEM School was represented at the "Technological Future of Armenia" project’s booth, as Yerevan State University is a member of the project board.
Let us note that in recent years, Yerevan State University has been actively participating in large-scale exhibitions and organizing exhibitions on its initiative.
