Moscow, Feb. 14, GNA - Twenty students from Africa, in addition to 23 others from seven countries, are visiting Moscow for a traditional Russian winter adventure in the Penza Region, located roughly 600 kilometres South East of the capital city.
The 43 students are attending the International Smart Holidays, a Rosatom School Project supported by State Atomic Energy Corporation, Rosatom.
The African Continent is represented by three countries: Ghana, Kenya and South Africa.
The students would spend 10 days developing new skills and learning about traditional Russian Maslenitsa Week. Their days would be packed with artistic, athletic and cultural activities.
They would, for example, play sports, stage their own theatrical performance, curate personal exhibitions, create educational quests and make friends across borders and language barriers.
“Rosatom is excited by the prospect of powering the youth through these innovative camps, which allow young people to meet their peers from across the globe and unlock their creative potential,” said Viktor Polikarpov, Rosatom Regional Vice President for Sub-Saharan Africa.
The students would also get a chance to see Moscow; the Red Square, St. Basil's Cathedral, the Historical Museum, the Cathedral of Christ the Saviour, the Moscow-City Skyscraper Complex, as well as panoramic views of the Kremlin.
International Smart Holidays takes place from February 10 to February 20.
