7th-11th graders will demonstrate their engineering achievements on 10 and 11 April at a workshop conference, Engineers of the Future, at the Bauman Moscow State Technical University.
The programme includes the demonstration of mock-ups and models, the presentation of projects using posters, and oral reports. The projects concern applied physics, power generation, bionics, mechanical engineering, robotics, microelectronics, design, information technology, and other fields of engineering.
Conference organisers have received over 600 applications from 156 Moscow schools. Experts have approved over half of them, and their authors have been invited to present their projects at the conference.
Discussions for teachers and school principals will include workshops, “Ways to Form Skills for Life and Future Professions at Modern Technology Compounds” and “Innovations-based Organisation of Pre-professional Education.”
The conference at the Bauman University is part of a city project, Engineering Class at Moscow School. The project was launched on 1 September 2015 and has brought together schools, technical universities, innovations-based creative centres and high-tech production facilities. Participants involved in the project receive basic knowledge about engineering professions and also pre-professional education.
