"Science for Ukraine" participants at CCNY, July-August 2023

Interlude from war-time learning brings gifted Ukrainian HS students to CCNY

Summer school at The City College of New York for 36 outstanding students from two of war-torn Ukraine’s top specialized high schools for physics and mathematics began with a 12-hour bus ride from the capital Kyiv to the Polish border on the west. It would take another six hours to get to Warsaw, Poland’s main city, from where the weary travelers caught a 10-hour flight to JFK. Conflict has a way of complicating the simplest of things in life. Until Aug. 12, however, normalcy returns to the lives of these young, gifted minds from the Kyiv’s Ukrainian Physics and Mathematics Lyceum (UPML) and
