Choosing the right profession is important for young people
In mid-December, with a tour of the Novopolotsk Thermal Power Plant, senior pupils of the physics and mathematics class of the Lyceum of Novopolotsk visited. Similar events for children at the station are held annually. During the excursion, the guys see with their own eyes how the power plant works, energy specialists in an accessible form explain to them how heat and electricity appear.
The choice of a profession is one of the most important and urgent tasks for graduate students.

Schoolchildren asked questions, examined with interest the uniform of operational personnel that ensures safety. Then the guys visited the turbine room turbine room and the boiler room of the main building of the Novopolotsk TPP.
“Energy requires great knowledge in the field of exact sciences, primarily physics. Our station gives heat and light to the city of Novopolotsk itself and its powerful industrial hub. And therefore, students of the Novopolotsk Lyceum with in-depth training in physics, mathematics, we are entitled to call our target audience. Energy is interesting and promising, and we are glad to have the opportunity to acquaint students interested in exact disciplines with our profession, ”said Vadim Kulaga, Deputy Director for Human Resources, Social and Ideological Issues.
