At the Olympiada, participants competed in three rounds and the strongest two teams were invited to the grand final. There the semi-finalists together with their professors had to solve a complicated game theory and present their results.

‘All of the teams did a great job and really enjoyed the competition. The most interesting thing is that the team members hadn’t met each other before but they became friends in the process,’ says Zhanar.
