"This award is the sign of a very high level of education in your region», - said at the ceremony СEO of «BioVitrum» Vladimir Tsimberg: «Biology is one of the most fundamental and promising sectors, which now comes to the fore. However, the science of the future is created not only by scientists, but also those who are still sitting at their desks. I hope that our gift will be a good basis to develop a curiosity and love of biology".
Zhanna Isaeva, the winner of the competition, said «For me it was one of the most important competitions in my life. I am glad that our guests are attended to Apatity and saw what can a teacher of small towns. Technique is wonderful!, it has a high-quality resolution, magnification: 20 - 25 times stronger than that can give our conventional microscopes. There is additional feature: a video camera.
