But we also know so little about inventions - about how they everyday affect our environment. We’ll try to throw the light on the people’s altitudes to smart things what is more important for them: the environment or the comfort of everyday life.

Из полученных нами результатов, мы выявили, что лишь некоторые ученики готовы отказаться от каких-либо благ цивилизации в пользу экологии. Все ученики единогласно утверждают, что не представляют свою жизнь без телефона и компьютера. Стоит отметить, что все учащиеся знают о вреде, наносимом организму данными изобретениями, но считают, комфорт - превыше всего. И они не готовы жертвовать им ради природы.


Having learned the information we understand the importance of technical inventions in our life. It is very important for us to use them in such way that we could live without problems. We won't refuse of being up-to-date man in modern society.
