Was Rasputin the victim of a conspiracy? Is space travel connected with the pedigree of the first director of the Polytechnic University, Prince Gagarin? What secrets do the basements of the Main Building keep? Every year, the SPbPU History Museum invites students to plunge into the depths of our university’s past – the spring competition “Do you know the history of your alma mater?” has already become a tradition.

Before the start of the competition, students met with a graduate of the Faculty of Electromechanics, the author of the “Evenings at the Polytechnic” project, which received the “TEFI-Region” award, Vitaly Maizel, who answered questions and shared stories from student life.

Then the guide of the project “Petersburg through the eyes of an engineer” Alexander Kizik gave a lecture to the children, from which they learned about the outstanding engineers who lived in St. Petersburg, their ideas and inventions that influenced the development of the city.

Then there was the competition itself, in which 13 teams participated. Four reached the finals: “PiYarshchiki”, “IKA”, “Impulse”, “Waltz Cotillion”. The latter became the first, scoring 75.7 points and winning the main prize – a trip to Kazan. The winners – Luka Boriskin and Tatyana Kleptsova from IBSiB and Milana Yukhnevich from ISI thanked the organizers of the competition and shared their emotions: Thank you for the exciting quest! We worked in a well-coordinated team, got to know each other better, everyone was able to contribute, show originality, it was truly an unforgettable experience. When we went through the quest, we realized that we were truly at home, and Polytechnic University was our alma mater.

The Impulse team took second place with 74.5 points. It consists of: Ilya Barabanov, Gleb Grankin, Danil Plotnikov, Yulia Rodnova from IKNK and representative of FizMech Pavel Putintsev. The guys will go on vacation to Kholomki, to the estate of Prince A.G. Gagarin.

I really enjoyed the competition! It was necessary to use the method of deduction and lateral thinking skills. We learned a lot of new things about our alma mater, and also had fun and usefully, and most importantly, we spent friendly time together,” said the silver medalists.

The third place was taken by the IKA team with 70 points. Elizaveta Khazagaeva (PhysMech), Pavel Lobanov (IKNK), Ivan Anikievich (IE), Andrey Gelakh and Yaroslav Golyzhenkov (IMMiT) received a certificate for excursions from partners – the company “Petersburg through the eyes of an engineer”.

Until the very last stage of the competition, people continued to be amazed by the rich history of their alma mater. The second and third stages of the competition were most memorable, as during them we learned many new facts that fueled even greater interest in the history of the university, its past and present. Now there is something to talk about with friends over a cup of tea and donuts, the bronze holders rejoice.

Members of the “PiYarshchiki” team – GI students Daria Gunina, Daria Boyko, Maria Semchenko and Ekaterina Dyakova received certificates as souvenirs.
