The summer school in the village Stroentsy on the Dniester left bank has already been conducting for three years. The participants are the school children from both Transnistria and Moldova. This year 32 lucky Transnistrian boys and girls were chosen from towns Rybnitsa, Dubossary, Bendery, Tiraspol, Dnestrovsk and villages Chobruchi, Nezavertajlovka, Pervomajsk. The same quantity of the youngsters has come from Moldova. The selection of participants was realized by ecological nongovernmental organizations of these settlements which entered the International Association of River Keepers "Eco-TIRAS". The main principle was the active participation of youth in the work of School Research society, school ecological detachment and other achievements.
The contest was great. The summer school in Stroentsy is famed as real "Harvard in nature" during previous two years.
You can not only strengthen your health or train your body in the walking about picturesque places but to listen to lectures of high qualified teachers of Kishinev and Tiraspol universities and Academy of Science of Moldova. The lessons went off just in the forest, on the slopes of the Dniester bank where there are many species of plants, insects and other creatures.
Such meetings are the best gift for the children desiring knowledge of the protection of our nature.
After big walking "tourist dad" Nikolai Vizitiu prepared Russian-baths on the Dniester bank.
