Young teachers got acquainted with steel production

In Zaporozhye, a forum of “Association of Young Teachers” took place in Zaporizhzhia in which 200 people took part in three days.

In addition to lectures and master classes, the participants had an excursion program. The forum brought together young teachers from all over Ukraine, so many of them wanted to get acquainted with Zaporizhzhia region. “Zaporizhstal” also was in this excursion.

This is my first time at such a metallurgical plant. And I was just asking if this is the whole territory. It turns out that no and plant is very large. It is very impressive.

I imagined it a little differently but the size was much bigger. I will tell my students about this excursion too. I am pleased to share with them the knowledge gained in Zaporizhzhia, – shared her impressions Wendy Finlayson, an English teacher at Sumy State University.

Participants visited control room and cold rolling workshop, where they saw acid pickling line and find out about environmental and production effects that this line gives. In addition, young teachers talked with the head of youth organization Sergey Ilchenko.
