"This is all described in the book "Problems of Thomson”. Together with my teacher we packaged this information in a more accessible form. My whole project took about a year. I prepared it with one of the teachers - professor of the Kazakh-Turkish Lyceum in Astana. We mostly talked via Skype, and in the summer I went to Astana to work together. I had to work long hours in the library," the student said.

The jury praised the work of the Kazakh schoolboy and awarded him a silver medal.

Besides scientific awards, the Kazakh delegation also won a sports award. A football tournament was held between representatives of the participating countries. Kazakhstan put forward two teams, one of which won the tournament, while the other took the third place. The second place went to Brazilians. Talgat played for one of the Kazakh team as a midfielder.
