On February 23, the Diesel Engine Day, the schoolchildren were taken on a tour to the Machine Hall of Lviv Polytechnic (5 Ustyianovycha St.).
Senior schoolchildren and students of vocational schools and colleges had the opportunity to learn about history of the diesel engine, in particular, about the prospects of the diesel engine in the era of electric cars, as well as how it is used by our military. In addition, they learned about the Automotive Transport educational program at Lviv Polytechnic.
It should be noted that one of the oldest diesel engines can be seen in the Machine Hall – it is more than a hundred years old.
― Our event is aimed at potential entrants. It is dedicated to the International Diesel Engine Day. It is important that today, in the conditions of war, the topic of diesel engines is very relevant. The event was held jointly with the Institute of Mechanical Engineering and Transport, in particular with the Department of Motor Vehicle Transport, and the Intellectual Educational and Scientific Center for Professional and Career Orientation of our University, said Volodymyr Bevz, Director of the History Museum of Lviv Polytechnic.
A highlight of the event was a quiz with prizes for the most attentive listeners. Senior schoolchildren and students of vocational schools were also given a tour of the main building of Lviv Polytechnic.
Reference: February 23 is the Day of the Diesel Engine, which was invented by the German engineer Rudolph Diesel. He received a patent for his invention on February 23, 1893.
