Russian Center in Dresden organized a Project day for high school students


A Project Day campaign for students from Saxon boarding school and for gifted children from gymnasium of St. Afra was organized in the Russian Center of German-Russian Institute of Culture in Dresden. The school follows traditions of the oldest educational institution in Germany, famous for its celebrated graduates: doctor Hahnemann, scientist Helert and poet Lessing. Russian language is taught as the second foreign language in that school. The students visited Russian Center as a part of preparation activities for the trip to Saint Petersburg, the sister city of Dresden.

More than thirty students from 6th to 12th grades together with three Russian language teachers including American Heather Rogers from Ball State University (Indiana) actively participated in the project “Multi-million Russian cities: yesterday, today and tomorrow” launched by the supervisor of the Russian Center Vitaly Kolesnikov and cultural manager Fraya Ebner. Chief executive officer of the German-Russian Institute of Culture and the General Director of the Russian Center Dr. Wolfgang Schälike pronounced an introductory word.

The students took a virtual trip around the largest country in the world, got acquainted with its unique natural, cultural and industrial peculiarities and discovered a comprehensive notion of “Russian World” with help of advanced multimedia capabilities of the Center. The high school students learnt a great deal of interesting facts and could win prizes and souvenirs from Saint Petersburg thanks to the educational quiz based on the movie of Russkiy Mir Foundation. Saxon children who became friends to our Russian Center are invited for an unusual excursion this September in Saint Petersburg. At the invitation of Boris Yeltsin Presidential library’s administration, they will attend the Holy of Holies of the unique collection “Rossievedenie” (Russian Studies) where they will be able to peep into boundless archives of the single electronic national library of Russia.
