October 1, 2016. As a result of winning the competition for the best project in the field of popularization of scientific knowledge entitled "School of Young Scientists" Olga Samokhina delivered a course of lectures on "Dynamics of the Earth and natural disasters", "Global environmental problems of our time" and "Astronomy" for school children of 7-11 grades of Moscow "School № 97".

Introduction of modern geo-information technologies and advanced imaging techniques of map data to improve the technical level of the educational process helped to inform school children on the current scientific geospatial data and discoveries in the field of geoscience, as well as to create a positive image of Russian science. All children have noted better learning of the material in comparison with a standard geography lesson and successfully passed the tests related to the topics of lectures.

After the event the school administration handed a letter of greetings to O. Samokhina.
