YEREVAN—A recent article outlined developments at the Young Minds project, which was established by the European Physical Society to foster science education among youth. The Yerevan branch, consisting of undergraduate and post-graduate university students, has brought hands-on science experiments and lectures to interested high school students in Armenia and Artsakh. The local Young Minds committee includes a number of students and researchers at Armenia’s Cosmic Ray Division of the A. Alikhanyan National Laboratory (Yerevan Physics Institute) and other Armenian universities. The European Physical Society cited the Armenian Young Minds group with the “2019 Best Activity of the Young Minds Project” prize.
