On 8 April, the capital will host the 8th International Graphics Contest “Blueprints, the International Language of Technology” dedicated to the World Day of Aviation and Astronautics. The event is to involve school boys and girls aged between six and 17 from Moscow and the People’s Republic of China, plus their parents and teachers.
They will submit their works in the following categories:
— Solid-state 3D modelling using Compass-3D software
— Modelling and assembling 3D objects using Compass-3D software
— Designing and engineering
— Projection blueprints
— Technical drawings
“During this tournament, we strive to unlock school children’s technical, creative and organisational abilities. While working on their projects, children will master information technologies, the basics of designing and engineering and will obtain additional graphic skills and knowledge,” said Yekaterina Morozova, Chair of the Joint Independent Association of Educators.
Contest participants will also learn how to work with international teams and will gain an insight into the achievements and history of the Russian space programme.
The winners will be selected and awarded 15 April at the Moscow Museum of Education. The best works will be displayed at the Museum’s exhibition on local graphics education.
