Intellectual Game “What? Where? When?”

On March 29, 2018, an intellectual game “What? Where? When?” was held in the lecture hall of the Department of Biophysics, Informatics and Medical Equipment of ONMedU. It was organized with the support of student self-government and the trade union of ONMedU students. The purpose of the event was to increase the cognitive interest and educational motivation and formation of logical thinking skills.

In general, 5 student teams of the 1st -3rd years of studies , consisting of 5 people each, participated in the game.

The rules differed from the classic version of the game. The organizers created a multimedia presentation, in which they depicted 8 different categories: medicine, history, cinema, the unknown, sports, around the world, art, a black box. Each category contained 5 questions of different degrees of complicacy, which were evaluated accordingly from 1 to 5 points.

Before opening of each category, the presenters made a draw, using interesting questions from the history of our university, which made it possible to determine the order of the teams responses.

In case of controversial subjects, the invited guests – interns, winners of Olympiads in Pharmacology and of many scientific conferences Vyacheslav and Konstantin Bardyshevy, helped to clarify the situation.

During the game the students showed coordinated team work and great interest, were fascinated and sometimes surprised with some amazing historical and many other different facts.

After counting the scores, the winners were identified:

First place was taken by the 1st year team “Green Raisin” (Captain – Anastasia Revukro)

Second place was taken by the 3rd year team “Antibodies” (captain – Bogdan Zinchuk)

Third place was taken by the 2nd year team “Zero Assistance” (captain – Andrew Sherer)

The teams “Great Combinators” and “Paragraph” received certificates of honor.

The judges selected two of the most active participants – Oleksandra Belkina from the team “Zero Assistance” and Anastasia Revukro from the team “Green Raisin”. After a small competition, Anastasia Revurko was awarded the title “The best player”.

All the participants received interesting gifts in memory of the game.

It should be noted that this event was interesting and useful for students, which indicates its importance.
