Sanzhar Turganbek, an 11th-grade student of the Nazarbayev Intellectual School in Taldykorgan, considers himself lucky. For his high academic achievements, the school allowed him to take summer language courses in the USA, at the Massachusetts Institute of Technology (MIT).
The opportunity to learn from outstanding teachers and professors is one of the special features of Nazarbayev Intellectual Schools. And this opportunity is given only to the best.
The summer course lasted six weeks. Students worked on their projects for 4-5 hours and then listened to lectures by specialists in the fields of engineering, physics, and chemistry. According to Sanjar, the program was very intensive.
