How much information is contained, for example, in the text of the novel "Crime and punishment", in the frescoes of Raphael or in human genetic code? Science does not give an answer to these questions and will unlikely give it soon. Is it possible to objectively measure the amount of information? Currently approaches to the definition of "information amount" based on the fact that the information, contained in the message, can be loosely interpreted in the sense of its novelty or otherwise reducing uncertainty of our knowledge about the object have become wide-spread. These approaches use mathematical concepts of probability and logarithm.
Upper-form pupils learned about the Chuvash State University, graduates of Informatics and computer engineering faculty of ChuvSU, about student life and social support for students. Schoolchildren were invited to the Regional festival of students and the youth «Human being, citizen, scientist», to Academic Olympics organized by the University, to circles andpre-entry courses.
