Nov. 8, 2021

October 29 2021, a team of International students of PenzGTU took part in the II Annual interactive intellectual game "Battle of Minds", which was attended by foreign students from different universities of the region. “The Institute for International Cooperation with the support of the International Students Association organized the event, - said Ksenia Lyagina, the FISE Educator. – 3 intellectual teams represented Penza State University, which was a serious challenge for our students. The chosen interaction format was aimed at creating the atmosphere of cooperation among regional Universities for the implementation of a modern approach to the educational activities of foreign students.

In the game, which was held distantly on the Zoom platform, took part the representatives of Penza State University, Penza State University of Architecture and Construction and PenzGTU. The students had to overcome 4 stages, including questions on general erudition and knowledge in the field of cinematography, music, world records, etc. “The main goal of the “Battle of Minds” is team work development, personal enrichment, - Ksenia continues. - I would like to note that our students – 5 representatives of Tajikistan and Uzbekistan - demonstrated a high team spirit and successfully coped with the tasks."

As a result, PenzGTU team won the 1 place, sharing winners’ podium with the students from Penza State University.
