SHYMKENT Scientific projects related to EXPO 2017 developed by students of Nazarbayev Intellectual Schools, including a playground that produces electricity, were presented during a recent festival in Shymkent.
Students from 16 intellectual schools across the country presented their inventions, devices and models in order to share ideas about the effective use of natural resources. Projects were evaluated in four categories, including alternative energy and ecology, alternative energy and economy, alternative energy and industry, and alternative energy and technology.
Student Bayan Sadvakassova received an award from the Astana EXPO 2017 company for her project that generates electricity from the movement of playground equipment. According to her calculations, students using various exercise equipment generate kinetic energy that is then converted into electricity and absorbed by a generator. Using the resources available at her school, the young inventor was able to prove the viability of her idea. Sadvakassova said she wants to promote a healthy lifestyle and help her nation.
