Uralkali Invested RUB 8.5 Million in an Engineering Class


Today, Secondary School No. 1 of Solikamsk opened an engineering class, in which Uralkali invested RUB 8.5 million. The funds were allocated to purchase modern lab systems for the study of chemistry, physics and computer science. In the future, it is planned to purchase interactive equipment and furniture.

As part of this project, the students enrolled in the engineering class will study physics, mathematics, chemistry and computer science at an advanced level in order to develop their engineering competencies as well as their research and innovation skills.

This initiative will help Uralkali and Perm National Research Polytechnic University to participate in the organisation of specialised pre-university training of school children and to organise career guidance events that will include field trips to the production facilities of the Company.
