MOSCOW, January 23. /ITAR-TASS/. Lomonosov Moscow State University (MSU) plans to start building a multi-profile school for gifted children in April 2014, the university’s rector Victor Sadovnichiy told the media on Thursday.
“We are planning to start construction work within a couple of months. The school will be an amalgamation of many educational buildings and blocks, just like the MSU itself. We will be looking for gifted eighth- and ninth-grade students throughout the country, so they could study in this specialized school”, he said.
Sadovnichiy said it would be a multi-profile school. “We will be searching for gifted children who are good at physics, chemistry, the humanities and arts, except for mathematics, for we already have a specialized math school”, he explained to the media.
The school building and children’s dorms will be located on the opposite side of the main MSU building, close to the metro station.
Moreover, the MSU is planning to build a technology cluster on a 100-hectare territory right behind the university’s Fundamental Library. “We want some laboratories and collective-purposes centers there - all the necessary infrastructure, which will allow our ideas, generated in university’s departments, to materialize and our scientists to transform their projects into completed technological units. Around a thousand young specialists will be working there”, added the rector, stressing there had been no such cluster in Russia so far.
