On October 20, a battle of young scientists was held at Moscow Aviation Institute in the format of a popular science show – Science Slam. The winner was a student of the Institute No. 4 "Radioelectronics, Infocommunications and Information Security" Maria Zolotenkova with her speech "How to understand rat conversations and what do rats talk about?".
