Bucharest, 27 June 2006 – SIVECO Romania, Altfactor, SpiderNet, Litera International are the upholders of the Olympic team that will represent Romania at the International Geography Olympiad, organized within 28 June –3 July at Brisbane, Australia. This contest aims to help the geography passionate students to know each other better and to bring their contribution to the development of this discipline at the pre- university level.

The support offered by SIVECO Romania to the Romanian Olympics is part of a  large campaign of our company that aims to sustain the Educational Software teen developers.

At GeoOlympiad, Romania is represented by the best students at this discipline, qualified after the National and The District Stage of the Geography Olympiad: Ioana Ioanoavici (The Computer Science National College Tudor Vianu, Bucharest), Alexandra Popescu (The National College Cantemir Voda, Bucharest), Alexandra Petrescu (The National College I.L.Caragiale, Ploiesti) and Anda Beretzki (The Grigore Moisil High School, Timisoara). The Romanian students  are coordinated by the Conf. Univ. Elena Matei (Bucharest University, The Geography Faculty) and Conf. Univ. Constantin Vert (West University, Timisoara).

The competition consists of three parts: a written test, a multimedia test and a substantial field work exercise.

Geography is more than a subject matter that ca be learned in school. It is the discipline that talks about natural and economic phenomena, about the typology, customs and the culture of people from different continents. Geography is the beautiful story of a changing world. SIVECO tries to bring to life this discipline, by offering the students the opportunity to learn intelligently by using AeL interactive lessons. We hope that we managed to educate the children’s passion, a real passion proved by their efforts to participate at the international and national contests, and sustained by the teachers’ active involvement. SIVECO encourages this attitude and we are supporting students and teachers’ attempt to reach performance in international contests”, declares Radu Jugureanu, eContent Manager within SIVECO Romania.
