On April 20, Thursday, within the framework of the year of N.I.Lobachevsky at the Kazan Federal University, the High School of the Russian Language and Intercultural Communication hosted a celebration dedicated to the great Russian scientist and talented Rector Lobachevsky. Two events were organized for foreign students: for the basic and the advanced levels of education, during which students learned about Lobachevsky the scientist, the founder of new directions in geometry, and Lobachevsky the Rector, who brought the university to the forefront in the scientific world. At the event, videos, presentations were shown and at the end a quiz was held, where prizes were given for correct answers. Students from different countries participated not only during the celebration, but also in preparation for it. Such events are of great importance in getting to know Russia and creating a positive image of our country abroad.
