Moscow University team interacts with Super 30
Patna: Inspired by the success of Super 30 of mathematician Anand Kumar, a team from Moscow State University today paid a visit to the academy and promised to take some of its students for higher education on full scholarship.
The team of teachers and students from Russia visited the Super 30 academy at Kumar's home and interacted with him and students drawn from economically poor background. Olga Arapova, a professor of Moscow State University who headed the team, told reporters that the purpose of the visit is to take meritorious students of Super 30 to Moscow on the lines of the arrangement with the University of Tokyo.
"We had heard a lot about Super 30 and the way it has successfully groomed students from underprivileged sections of the society over the past 15 years. We wanted to see it to get a feel of it. We will also like some of its students to pursue higher education in the University of Moscow," she said.
Arapova said she will invite Anand to Russia so that he could interact with the students and faculty members of Moscow University.
