Sessions 2020

Session 1 The Mysterious Island

Session profile - language, research

Based on the book "The Mysterious Island" by Jules Verne

The first session is devoted to science. The topic is interesting for those who define the movement of mankind to new horizons as their vocation, who find the unusual in the ordinary and look ahead further than others. Jules Verne's novel "The Mysterious Island" is a book not only about adventures, but also about the triumph of human intelligence, knowledge, ingenuity and resourcefulness. Within the framework of the legend, the research laboratories of the Academy of Children's Sciences will open - an intellectual, creative, sports, theater, as well as a laboratory of folk crafts.

Session 2 The house that we built

Session profile - linguistics, communication

Based on the book "The Adventures of Tom Sawyer" by Mark Twain

“Istochnik” is the territory of different but equal people. The territory where everyone is active, creative and original.  During the session, children build their Home.  Our Home is a value because children speak different languages, dance different dances, and cook different food.  Our House runs the garmut of cultural diversity based on mutual understanding and cooperation, solidarity and support.

A significant event will be the holiday "The House We Built!" 

Session 3 Robinsonade

Change profile - linguistics, spiritual and intellectual formation

Based on the book by Daniel Defoe "Robinson Crusoe"

Daniel Defoe's novel "Robinson Crusoe" narrates not only about adventures but also about manliness, resourcefulness of man, fortitude and hard work.  This book has become a symbol of man's faith in his own boundless strength and overcoming difficulties.

The main idea is the spiritual and intellectual formation of a person placed in difficult conditions as well as drawing children into travel, physical culture and healthy lifestyle.  Children will find themselves on an unusual Island. This event will become a criterion for determining both physical strength and human qualities. 

Session 4 The roads that we take

Session profile - linguistics, personal growth

Based on the book by D. Aldridge "The Last Inch"  

The book "The Last Inch" by D. Aldridge was chosen as the leitmotif of the session.  We made such a choice, basing on the ideological concept according to which each child will try to build their own trajectory of personal growth.

The epigraph of the session is "You never know what you are capable of until you try!"  (D. Aldridge). 

Key events:

  • educational project of the session "Navigator of self-determination" 
  • festival of kites
  • competition of children's projects "Summer 2021"
