Students of Savremena Gimnazija at the event

Students of Savremena Gimnazija participated in the event "Science around us" in the field of forensics, which is organised by the Faculty of Physical Chemistry of the University of Belgrade for the 13th time in a row for all interested students of the 3rd and 4th grades.

Students who participated in this event are Filip Đurđević (IV-3), Sofija Stevanović (III-6), Lara Veselinović (III-6), Elena Martić (III-6), Milena Žarković (III-4), Natalija Janković (III-4), Nikolina Jovanović (III-6) and Zara Korać (III-5).

The students learned about forensics and how they should behave in laboratory conditions

The lecture started at 10 a.m. in the small amphitheatre, where students attended the lecture of associate professor Dr Maja Milojević Rakić. The topic of the lecture was forensics and a description of the experimental laboratory exercises that followed the lecture. At the lecture, they received all the information and instructions on how to behave in laboratory conditions, as well as the rules they should follow.

The lecture was followed by a short break for refreshments in the library, provided by the Faculty of Physical Chemistry.

Each experiment made them think about how they would manage in the given situations

The experiments followed, which the students could observe and try to conduct themselves. Each experiment introduced them to the world of forensics and made them think about how they would manage in such situations.

Examples of experiments

Experiment number 1: How to find a fingerprint on a certain surface using powder and a fine brush, but also how does that fingerprint look when irradiated with a UV lamp?

Experiment number 2: Identification of traces of blood in a dark room using luminol.

The organiser of the event, Maja Milojević Rakić, was pleasantly surprised and grateful that the students of Savremena Gimnazija attended the event in such large numbers.

I am extremely pleased and proud to be the parent of a Savremena student. During my first encounter with the school management, when I asked about my child’s potential enrolment, I saw how much love, enthusiasm and professionalism you put in your work. I was impressed by your approach, ideas and methods. I couldn’t believe something like this existed in our country! It doesn’t take long to realise that this is a school you would recommend to everyone. Creativity, modern technology, top-quality education, and most of all, the humaneness that can be seen throughout the school, make it truly different and worthy of its name – Savremena Gimnazija. With such an approach, the success of this school and, consequently, our children’s success, is unavoidable. Congratulations! Jelena Đorđević, Andrija’s mum
Contemporary in any sense of the word, our school offers functional knowledge and quality preparation for tertiary education in Serbia and abroad. Implementing modern and creative teaching in the classroom, where the teachers’ pedagogy and students’ performance are aligned with the highest academic standards for the high-school finals, our school develops linguistic, mathematical, scientific, artistic, cultural, technical and ICT competence, which is a prerequisite for further education and professional development. Teaching is supported by the interactive whiteboards and educational software, whereas practice exercises research and critical thinking.
