Soldering iron, cannon and plastic pipes: how schoolchildren and students competed in engineering sciences

December 9 and 10 pupils of engineering classes and first-year students of the Moscow Poly fought for the title of the best team at the tournament “The Engineering Start”. The participants presented to the experts’ jury a wind electricity generator, a water cannon, a small self-driven car, an air consumption meter and a device for low temperature boiling.

Since 2014 the work is held at the Moscow Poly, aimed at reducing the gap between education and industry, by means of integrating the project activity in the educational process. The need to fortify basic knowledge with practical skills is most obvious in engineering education. “It is obvious that an engineer who held a soldering iron just once in his life, during implementation of his diploma project, will not be in high demand at the labor market”, - says Director of the Moscow Poly Center for Project Activity Ilia Lepeshkin. – “There should be several projects, they should be solving real problems of the industry and be supervised by people, close to it, and, as well, provide accumulation of the following skills: the ability to identify requirements of the market, soft skills, work in an interdisciplinary team under conditions of a pronounced deadline and regular feedback from the customer”. It was the project activity of the university that gave birth to competitions “The Engineering Start”.

Schoolchildren and first-year students from directions of engineering specialties were getting prepared to the tournament for three months. At the beginning of the year the teams received 5 tasks from the customer, a small budget and laboratories with 3D printers, a soldering iron and computers. They presented finished manufactures to the jury, which evaluated both the technical characteristics of the product and its design. In parallel master classes in electronics, carpentry, mechanics and computer modeling were held for schoolchildren and students.

For the stage “Wind electricity generator” participants designed a generator, using energy of the air torrent. “Problems of the energy crisis are brewing in the world, of environment protection and of renewable energy sources”, - says Chief Judge of the Stage, Director of the Moscow Poly Center for Technological Support of Education Ilia Volnov. – “We combined these current problems and gave participants a task to develop a renewable energy source by means of a wind generator”. To implement the task, children had to think of the whole design from scratch on paper, then chose appropriate materials and assembled the manufacture.

“The most difficult part was to define the concept of the project”, - mentions the schoolboy Denis Murzin. – “We thought for a long time what a wind generator should look like, what materials are required. As a result, our design includes both a bike wheel and plastic pipes”.

For the task “Water cannon” the participants had to think of a device for a directed and precise relocation of two liters of water to the target, situated at a distance of three meters. The main condition was accuracy. “It is possible to move a liquid in a cannon by means of pressure”, - tells us Chief Judge of this stage Ivan Petukhov. – “Thus, in the process of implementation of the task children acquire experience in creating pressure in a vessel and train carpentry skills”.

For the task “Self-driven vehicle” the participants developed small cars, capable of overcoming in automated mode the S-shaped route from the start line to the finish. The task illustrates automatic parking of cars. Any touching of the site wall means the end of the attempt, any correction of the movement trajectory from outside means a failure. The students of the transport faculty made a very special design – a small car in a form of a stove from the fairy-tail “By an order of a pike”. “The idea belongs to my course-mate Olga, she has such imagination”, - says a team participant Roman Baryshev. – “Most difficult for us were the last days before the final – our small car lost its way. We had to rewrite the program and add more functions”.

To pass the stage “Air consumption meter” the teams thought of a device, capable of measuring air consumption per a time unit. “Participants were offering very interesting things”, - mentions Chief Judge of this stage Sergey Tipalin. – “For example, a team was measuring the rotation speed of the device, and afterwards, using formulas, calculated it in the needed units”.

To implement the stage “Device for low temperature boiling” it was necessary to develop a device, allowing to have a boiling liquid in the volume of 600 ml at a low temperature. This is reached by means of creating vacuum inside the vessel. In the course of testings the heater switches on and the temperature of liquid inside is registered. “The vacuum pump, which the participants design, is widely used in industry, plastics processing, melting of complex steel products, in refrigerating equipment and innovative water cooling installations”, - says the Chief Judge of this stage Ilia Malafeyev. – “The task is complicated, but children managed to reach the temperature of 40 and 50 degrees”.

Results of the “The Engineering Start” will be displayed at the Moscow Poly website. In fact, for the first-year students this competition became an unusual exam during the first exam session.

Students of the Moscow Poly are winners of PUSHKA - the innovations contest in industrial design

November 22 the international forum of innovations in industrial design PUSHKA was held in “Moscow -City”. Students from Russia, Belorussia and Finland presented their designer projects. The winners of the contest, including the Moscow Poly students, got an opportunity to implement their design projects and received offers of cooperation and internships. And this means that cooperation among education, design and industry can be efficient.

Those students could get to the PUSHKA forum at “Moscow-City”, whose works had been selected in the contest qualifications by partner companies. Contest participants were supposed to work out a design for real products, having analyzed the market and specific features of the customer. Each brand had its nomination: the company “Aquaphor” established a contest of the best water filters, “Elica” – silent multifunctional exhausters,  “Gorenje” – innovative home appliances, etc. The Moscow Poly was presented at the contest and forum exhibition by the students of training directions “Transport design” and “Industrial design”, while curators of their projects were the teachers from the Center for Project Activity and from Department “Design”.

According to the teacher of the Moscow Poly Center for Project Activity, curator Viktor Khrapovitskiy, participation in such contests motivated a student to further development. ”Firstly, at the forum one can get acquainted with projects by students from designer schools from various countries, compare one’s level and understand, at what it is worth working more”, - says the curator. – “Secondly, there is a possibility to get an internship or employment at a company. PUSHKA gives the understanding that you do not work in vain, your product has a potential customer, interested in it”.

The main peculiarity of the forum is an opportunity to have one’s project evaluated by real stars of industrial design, like Sviatoslav Saakian, Sergey Smirnov or Fabrizio Criza. Cooperation with major companies will allow beginning designers to acquire experience, so valuable in the opinion of employers. A separate round table was devoted to the issues of employment. Experts in the area of education, business and intellectual law told the audience how to present the project to a potential customer in a proper way, what difficulties arise on the way “student- specialist” and how they can be avoided, and, also, discussed features of the world market with representatives of the Italian company “Elica”.

Fabrizio Criza and Giancarlo Traversa mentioned that in Italy young engineers and designers after graduation from the university encounter difficulties as well, because their idea of work does not coincide with reality. President of the company “Elleci” Giancarlo Traversa gave advice to the student audience: “Big things are born from little things. Do not try to design immediately a super-mega-lux project. Start with small things, which help usual people avoid problems in their everyday life, and always apply design, bearing in mind peculiarities of its implementation”.

Ilia Lepeshkin, Associate Professor and Head of the Moscow Poly CPA, spoke of the difficulties in communication between designer and a technical specialist. On the one hand, often designer’s ideas become drivers for innovations. On the other hand, a designer is not just a creator, his aim is implementation of the product, and for that one needs to find common language with an engineer, a marketer, specialists from other industries. “In the Moscow Poly the students unite in interdisciplinary teams from the first course, in order to have a complex approach to the problem solution. Thus, they come to new ideas, which can be in demand and lead to a more comfortable future”, - concluded Ilia Lepeshkin. In the framework of studies at Department “Design” and in the Center for Project Activity (CPA) the students every semester pass the way from formulation of the task to presentation of the finished project, modeling the real workflow in a design studio.

The official part ended with a ceremony of awarding winner students, and, as well, presenting of the prize for contribution to development of the Russian industrial design. Young designers from the Moscow Poly occupied two first places, two second ones and two third ones. The transport faculty students Ilia Bondar and Vladimir Velichanskiy won with a design of a self-driven track for the company “Traft”, which, as it is planned, in the near future will undertake a test trip between Moscow and St Petersburg. In the basis of the design, offered by them, there is an idea of domination of decoration of a cargo compartment over the exterior of the cabin. The choice of materials for the body was unique: the mycelium (a composite made of fruit bodies of fungi, already nicknamed as “brick of the new time”), soy plastic and heavy-duty glossy glass. While to make the car well seen on the roadway, attracting attention of other traffic participants, the students proposed to equip it with multilevel lighting. The students got a money prize from the company and a possibility to implement the project.

A design-concept by Arina Krivtsova became the first in the area of innovative appliances for kitchen, for what she was awarded with a set of tableware by a good firm. “My potential user is a traveler, and, since with the last three years the tourist flow to Asia-Pacific region has grown, the tableware set is devoted to the Asian cuisine”, - says the Moscow Poly student. – “The main advantages of the set are its compact size, environment-friendly materials (hypoallergenic nickel silver, ceramics and black ebony, protecting from burns) and the ethnic style”.

The second place and an air ionizer by a good producer was given by the company “Elica” to Yana Kozhemiakina for the project of the kitchen exhauster. And in the nomination of water filters the second place went to Vlada Barulina and Miroslava Pluzhnikova.

The third place was taken by the water mixer of the future by Inna Kozhurina. And, as well, a design project of home appliances for the company “Gorenje” by the team of the Moscow Poly students: Polina Nemchinova, Anastasiya Degtiareva and Marina Rudakova. The girls proposed a module refrigerating cupboard, that “grows” together with a social status of the consumer. This project was specially emphasized by a representative of another company, forum expert Viktor Pasternak. “I do not know a person who would use all 20 functions of the combine. The possibility to assemble functions from modules instead of buying a ready appliance, would be needed for an owner of any kitchen. A possibility to choose a functional is a trend. In my opinion the participants not just got in this trend – they have indicated it”, - he said.



The PUSHKA forum, arranged by the company Artekey, is held for the second year with the support of such world-famous brands as “Gorenje”, “Elica”, “Elleci” and “Aquaphor”.

This is a unique platform, where students-designers meet with real customers and get an opportunity to implement their most brave projects. Participants of the forum are students from the Moscow Poly, the Stiglitz Academy, the Stroganov Academy, the Belorussian State Academy of Arts and a University of Applied Sciences of Lahti (Finland). Pavel Cave, Director General of the company Artekey: “We are convinced that the future of education is in efficient integration of educational and production processes. We accompany the students in the process of new projects development and give them an opportunity to present them directly to producers. Thus, the students get real experience in industry, while the producers can find new interesting concepts and solutions”.

Players of the Moscow Poly are World Champions in futsal

November 7 the Moscow Poly men’s team won the title of the World Champion in futsal at the VI World Championship among the club teams. “MosPolytech” (formerly “Torpedo-MAMI”) was the winner in each of four competition stages, having overcome in the standings a team “Yegorievsk” from the Moscow region and a team “Soyuz-Energo” from Belorussia. All in all, there were 12 teams participating in the championship from Europe, Asia, Africa and America.

The games took place in three Russian cities: Moscow, Ivanteyevka and Yegorievsk. Participants were divided into four subgroups of three teams each. The winners of the inter-group competitions went out into the play-off stage. “You do not have a right to lose in the play-off”, - says the coach of the Moscow Poly team Aleksandr Fedorov. – “Our team won all the matches: in the ¼ of the finals they defeated the team from Peru and in the semi-finals - champions of the Czech Republic in futsal”. In the finals “MosPolytech” fought with the team from Yegorievsk.  According to the coach of our team, the rivals were very strong, and it was hard to play in the finals. “We were losing 0:1, but managed to pull ourselves together, focus and reach victory”, - notes Aleksandr Fedorov.

Dmitriy Kurushin, a “MosPolytech” member, was recognized the best player of the Championship, Vlad Akhukov – the best scorer of the Championship. In addition, in our team were distinguished Andrey Ivanov and Vladimir Minnigaleyev – each of them scored a goal in the final match.

It is not the first victory of the men’s team “MosPolytech”. Our team also won at the XXV Championship of Russia in Mini-football among Universities, it got into the finals of the League of Champions in Futsal in Italy and it won in the Intercontinental Cup in Argentina. “Every game is important for us”, - says the team coach. – “And it is necessary to win in each of them. Even the student games are often an important stage in preparing to more serious competitions”.

We wish our team every success and new victories!

Two silver medals were awarded for developments of the Moscow Poly at the IENA-2017 in Germany

November 2-5 the 69th international exhibition “Ideas-Innovations-New Developments” IENA-2017took place in a German city Nurnberg. Participants of a largest exposition were inventions, patented by scientists of the Higher School of Printing and Media Industry (HSPMI) of the Moscow Poly. Developments in the sphere of nano printing were highly evaluated by the judges and received 2 out of 9 silver medals, awarded to the Russian delegation in the framework of the competition program. All in all, the Ministry of Education and Science of the RF presented 48 inventions, 18 of which were marked with medals at the exhibition.

The international exhibition IENA gathers annually over 600 inventions from about 30 countries of the world. The event allows to demonstrate science-intensive technologies at the international arena, and, as well, facilitates the flow of investments into economies of participating countries. The stand of the Ministry of Education at Nurnberg this year presented one of the largest national expositions – 48 inventions of research institutes, research-and-production enterprises from 16 leading universities of the country were sent to Germany. Foreign experts could see innovations in the main thematic sections of the exhibition starting from information and telecommunication technologies and up to manufacture of new materials. According to the Ministry of Education and Science of Russia, the major interest of visitors was caused by inventions and developments of the Moscow Poly, RTU “MISiS”, SamSU.

The HSPMI of the Moscow Poly presented nano technologies in the area of polygraphy: a multi-layer printing form with a nano lawn and a nano lisp material for secure printing. According to one of the authors of the developments, Head of Department “Technologies and quality control in packaging” of the HSPMI Evgeniy Babliuk, participation in the exhibition not only allows to gain international acknowledgment of research works, but also enables inflow of investments owing to purchase of licenses. While diplomas and medals of the contest are awarded directly to the organization, represented by the developers.

A special form for flat offset printing (the authors: Katsman V. D., Babliuk E. B.) contains a layer of the nano lawn, an image and a control chip. The development will allow to print the smallest details for electronic devices, using the same formation material – nano lawn, and to create directly at the printing device numerous printed forms with various images. At present it is necessary to change the forms after each printing, or, otherwise to use a direct technology “computer-to-printing”, which gives inadequate image resolution. The development solves this problem, at the same time allowing printing of manufactures at the nano level in order to get devices from a LED to a monitor. In addition to the silver medal, the patent was awarded with diplomas of the Indian Association of Inventors, of the Russian House of Scientific and Technical Cooperation with Foreign Countries, of the Ministry of Education and Science of the RF.

Another development, a nanodispersed film polymer material for secure printing (the authors: Babliuk E. B., Kondratov A. P., Dryga M. A.), was also manufactured using the smallest nano-particles. The development will allow to paint “water marks”, seen without sophisticated devises, on the labels and similar means of identification and indication of products. This will make it easier to recognize and control the goods in everyday life, simultaneously making impossible their forgery – the way the marks are displayed depends on how stretched is the material, and that is why copying requires professional skills in using the technology.

The Project Start for the students of humanities at the Moscow Poly

December 19 the finals of the contest the “Project Start” were held at the Moscow Poly. First-year students of humanities presented their projects of promoting educational programs of the Moscow Polytechnic University and their own entrepreneurial initiatives.

Since 2014 the Moscow Poly works on reducing the gap between education and industry by means of integrating the project activity in the educational process. Starting from the first course the students in interdisciplinary teams work on real projects of employers. Already for four years a contest for the Moscow Poly first-year students – the “Engineering Start” – is being held. From this year a tournament the “Project Start” is arranged for students of humanities. According to Director for Educational and Research Projects Gyuzel Sharipzianova, the “Project Start” is held in order to teach the students thinking in terms of the technological entrepreneurship. In addition, during preparation of their projects the students receive a necessary minimum of skills, which will be applied in the framework of the project activity starting from the second semester and until the end of studies.

The “Project Start” is designed for the students, studying economics, management, HR, state and municipal management, advertising and PR, law and economic security. During the semester the students formed the teams, distributed roles and prepared the projects in nominations “Development of a PR campaign for an educational program” and “Development of an entrepreneurial initiative”. Each nomination had its own requirements to results and criteria for quality evaluation. For PR campaign of educational programs the students wrote a road map and compiled a cost estimate within a fixed budget. For the second task the students chose a product or a service and developed a business plan for its promotion. Each project was accompanied with a presentation and a video. The works were evaluated by a jury, including, in addition to the Moscow Poly teachers, invited experts as well.

According to Professor of the Center for Project Activity Vladimir Nikolskiy, the most interesting project was presented by students from the training direction “Advertising and PR”. As an entrepreneurial initiative the students proposed to establish a student creativity agency and a lecture club. The creativity agency, according to the idea, would provide paid services in development and production of creative concepts, original advertising ideas, promotion of business projects, including startups. While the main objective of the lecture club would be to produce art-space for advertisers, where they could generate their ideas and exchange information.

Students had a battle in solving non-standard problems at a mathematical Olympiad In the mind

December 18 an Interuniversity Team Olympiad in Mathematics “In the mind” was held. It was arranged by the teachers of Department “Mathematics” of the Moscow Poly. To demonstrate their non-standard thinking in solving project-and-research problems the students of 1-4 courses of the Financial University at the Government of the RF came to the competition, as well as students of the RSU of oil and gas named after I. M. Gubkin and of the Moscow Poly. The undisputed leader of the competition was a team of the second-course students from the Moscow Poly, studying on the specialty “Cryogen and refrigerating equipment”.

Teachers of Department “Mathematics” conducted additional classes for those who wanted to take part in the competition. During trainings the participants were offered to solve problems with ingenuity in the format of the game “What? Where? When?”. As a result of an open discussion the think-tank of a future team was defined, and the roles were distributed.

Since there were too many students, wishing to take part, the teachers held a qualifying round and thus formed the faculty teams. According to the coach of the winner-team, Associate Professor of Department “Mathematics” of the Moscow Poly Mikhail Bogdanov, the success of the competition is explained by a free format. Each student attended preparatory classes as he wished, the problems were aimed at checking up ingenuity, not just the learnt material. “In my opinion, what caused such enthusiasm of the students was an opportunity to learn to solve non-standard problems, when nobody demands from them anything and does not evaluate the results with assessments. Owing to interesting tasks and various formats the students get noticeably relaxed: immediately a thought flight appears and a sporting passion”, - considers Mikhail Bogdanov.

All in all, 8 teams took part in the full-time part of the Olympiad. The competition consisted of 4 rounds according to the complexity level of the tasks. In each round the participants had to solve 5-6 problems within a certain time span. For simple problems just a minute was given, for more complicated ones – up to 5 minutes. After each round the moderator explained the solution, while the jury was leading scoring. It is interesting that a leader did not change during the whole game, though each part had its own prize-winners.

Non-formal student team competitions in mathematics are held at the Moscow Poly already for the third time. The competitions are aimed at encouraging mathematic and project creativity, motivation to study engineering sciences and development of unconventional thinking.

The next student team Olympiad in mathematics - “The Wits Battle”-  will be held in May of 2018.  We invite everyone to participate!

Futsal teams of the Moscow Poly are the best in Europe

Over the past two weeks the women’s and men’s futsal teams of the Moscow Poly won in several European competitions at once. December 9 the girls returned to Moscow with a victory at the European Championship. And December 13 the men’s team took the European Super Cup.

The women’s team “MosPolytech” competed with their European opponents in Spain from December 3 to 9. At the European Championship the girls fought with players from Belgium, Norway, Spain and Russia. “The Belgian team led a tough game in the manner of power, that only encouraged our girls”, - says the coach of our team Aleksandr Pleshakov. – “As a result of four matches the “MosPolytech” scored 76 goals and conceded just 2. We train 6 days a week and advance faster than our rivals. We get prepared thoroughly, working out the strategy, and change the tactics if the plan does not work”.

Our men’s team is successful at the international arena as well. December 13 the team won the European Super Cup in Czechia, beating the hosts of the playground “Chemcomex” Praha in both matches with the score 5:3 and 7:2. According to a player of the “MosPolytech” Vlad Akhukov, tall players of the Czech team were imposing the struggle, but our sportsmen have always been known for their agility and well-coordinated team game. “We faced a worthy opponent, but today we are a more competent, cohesive and strong team. Having analyzed our rival’s game, in the second match we completely controlled the course of the game”, - says Vlad Akhukov.

Congratulations to the teams of the Moscow Poly and their leaders in connection with their performance at the European and the world arenas.

The Moscow Poly showed a Smart Greenhouse and a robot-bartender at the exhibition Vuzpromexpo

December 13 and 14 the Russian universities, research institutes and industrial enterprises presented their newest developments at the fifth annual exhibition “Vuzpronexpo-2017”. At the stand of the Moscow Poly a bionic robo-arm, a Smart Greenhouse”, a robot-bartender, a racing car and an electric bike were presented.

The “Smart Greenhouse” is a development of the IT faculty student Nikita Samoylov. The idea of the project is to control growth of vegetable cultures by means of a cloud platform “GreenPL IoT” and regulate the temperature and soil humidity in any weather. “The whole process can be automated. The program will be guided by sensors or by the time and will control the climate in the greenhouse on its own”, - says the student.

The Department of Research Work presented at the “Vuzpromexpo” a robotic bionic arm prosthesis. Myoelectrical intelligent capture control provides a high level of functionality, close to a healthy human hand. Both the documentation for a prosthesis line and algorithms and control methods for the movements of the elbow and the shoulder joints of the prosthesis arm were developed at the Moscow Poly. Also, a robot-bartender was shown at the exhibition, which is the newest development of the Moscow Poly FabLab residents. For the nearest future it is planned to create an application for a smartphone, which would allow everybody to “order” a cocktail at his choice to be made by the robot.

An Arctic all-terrain vehicle was also presented at the exhibition, for which the wheels with low pressure tires had been developed at the Moscow Poly. The car is designated for transportation of various cargos and people on any roads in Arctic areas of Siberia and Far East. In addition, the visitors could see a racing car IGUANA G9, developed and manufactured in the laboratory “Formula Student”. The team “Smart Moto Challenge Polytech” presented the newest development – an electric bike “Phoenix”, created for the off-road racing.

The Moscow Poly representatives took part in the business program of the “Vuzpromexpo” as well. Director for Educational and Research Projects Gyuzel Sharipzianova was a speaker at the round table “The eco system of the technological entrepreneurship at universities”. She shared with her colleagues the unique experience in organization of the project activity at the Moscow Polytechnic University. “In 2014 the project activity emerged as an obligatory discipline in educational programs of engineering specialties”, - says Giuzel Sharipzianova. – “At first we had just 17 projects, today there are 150”. The topics of the projects cover all rapidly developing economic sectors: technology, energy, IT and design. “It was from the project activity of the university that the competitions “Engineering Start” were born, where the first-year students carry out real orders from customers. But this year we decided to go further and to hold a “Project Start” – for the students of humanitarian specialties. Participation in it will teach the students thinking in terms of entrepreneurship. And from the next semester the future lawyers and economists will take part in the projects already launched up, including the engineering ones”, - mentioned the Director.

At the discussion “The project activity in a university and pre-acceleration” the Dean of the faculty of technological entrepreneurship Ivan Yurin told the audience how to arrange a technological entrepreneurship at a university. The Dean of the transport faculty Pablo Iturralde presented a children’s technopark of the Moscow Poly Center for Engineering Development, expected to open December 25. Professor of the Center for Project Activity Vladimir Nikolskiy told participants how inclusion of the students of economic, managerial and law directions in the engineering projects is arranged at the Moscow Poly. “Engineers know how to create cool products, but, at the same time, they do not know how to communicate with surrounding reality”, - mentioned Vladimir Nikolskiy. – “The students from the training direction “Advertisement and public relations” can help them in it, while economists can develop a model of promotion of an engineering project. Such joint activity is useful because it changes the view of engineers at their own invention. Engineers learn to see people around them, work and communicate with them”.


The “VUZPROMEXPO” is an annual event, where the results of a number of state and federal programs of the Education Ministry of Russia are drawn. The exhibition is aimed at demonstrating the best practices in the area of introduction of innovative developments in the domestic industry.

For participation in the exhibition the Moscow Poly received a diploma, signed by the Minister of Education and Science of Russia Olga Vasiliyeva and the Minister of Industry and Trade of Russia Denis Manturov.

Volunteers from the Moscow Poly will represent Moscow at the World Championship WorldSkills 2019

December 11 the open Russian contest for the right to be a resource center for recruiting volunteers of the 45th World Championship in professional skills according to the WorldSkills standards, held in the framework of the “Volunteers Academy 2017”, ended in Kazan. As a result of the contest, the Moscow Poly Volunteer Center got an official status of a Resource Center for Recruiting Volunteers and will represent Moscow at the Championship in 2019.

In the finals of this contest the participants made a presentation of a resources center, where they spoke of their experience in arranging and holding the Championship. “In our project we told the audience that the WorldSkills format is far from new for us. Our university holds exams in this format on a regular basis, and just recently the Moscow Poly hosted the Open Qualifying Championship according to the WorldSkills Standards. Our volunteers helped in organization of the event, and, as well, worked on the finals of the First National Intercollegiate Championship”, - says Chief of the Volunteer Center Yuliya Kuznetsova. – “The students got invaluable experience, which will be useful to them in 2019”. She also mentioned that the objective of the center is not only in training volunteers, but, as well, in making the WorldSkills movement more popular among students and youth.

Twenty volunteer centers from 16 regions of Russia passed in the finals of the contest. Within five days the students attended numerous lectures and master classes, gaining the understanding of volunteers’ activities in the course of competitions. The participants were able to visit the regional championship “Young Professionals” of the WorldSkills Russia in Republic of Tatarstan and listen to Director General of the JSSS “Center for Development of Professional Competences” Emil Gubaidullin. In addition, the students could speak to champions of the WorldSkills and attend a lecture by Executive Director of the WorldSkills International David Home.

The correspondence and fulltime stages of the contest were held in Autumn of 2017, while the active inclusion of the centers in implementation of the volunteer program is planned from 2018. The first step will be signing of agreements on cooperation with the organizer of the championship JSSS “Directorate of Sports and Social Projects” and official inauguration of resource centers.

And children not just can try themselves in a role of a cell biologist or a web-sites developer, but also can get acquainted with modern equipment, learn something new about the world around them”.

All in all, 3 759 children took part in master classes in design and photography, biotechnologies and material science, book publishing history and interviewer’s skills, computer graphics and development of mobile applications, designing and prototyping. At the first lecture at the Moscow Poly the gurus of car design spoke to the schoolchildren about the automotive production. Department “Design” of the transport faculty prepared an exhibition of graduation works ‘Degree Show”, where the graduates presented their concepts of cars and described how the project should be developed from the level of a concept and up to implementation in a model.

The schoolchildren tried their abilities both in technical and humanitarian sciences. Thus, on the platform of the Moscow Poly Higher School of Printing and Media Industry, the schoolchildren participated in master classes in technologies of printing, in oratory and speaking in public, and, as well, took interviews, guided by the teachers of Departments “Journalism and mass communications” and “Advertisement and public relations in media industry”.

According to the coordinator of the project at the HSPMI, Head of Department of Professional Orientation and Work with Applicants Yaroslav Dmitriyev, the last season of the project showed the popularity of the flagman faculties of the school. “We are especially proud of a cycle of classes in the graphic design and printing techniques, prepared by a Senior Teacher of Department “Artistic and technical processing of printed matter” Olga Yakovleva. At her classes the participants got acquainted with technologies of processing the digital images by means of software products “Adobe Photoshop” and “Adobe Illustrator”, they mastered techniques of linocut print. In addition, in the framework of the project the schoolchildren attended a workshop on an ancient technique of printing on water – ebru. Participants could create unique graphic patterns with their own hands on the water surface and transfer them to the surface of the fabric or paper”, - says Yaroslav Dmitriyev.

Employees with practical experience and teachers of Department “Illustration and printmaking” told children about artistic skills in working with the books, while a researcher of the Museum of Printing History, Publishing and Ivan Fedorov MSUP Nataliya Medvedeva introduced the attendants to the history of writing and printing in different countries.
