Alexander Yurievich supported the idea, so we started the work. Initially, the team only included the Faculty [of Mechanical Engineering] students but now we have representatives of various faculties. When possible, we take part in the offsite games and represent Moscow Poly. There is a huge project that we`re planning to implement in spring 2023. As for the Festival, it was a total holiday. All participants were not only pleased to participate in the game but also happy to communicate with students form other universities. We are really grateful to the vice-president for educational and social policy Olga Chernykh for her support and attention for the team members.”
