The Moscow Poly congratulates the winners of the National Technology Initiative Olympiad

February 28 the winners of the individual and team rounds of the NTI Olympiad in nine profiles were disclosed in the educational center “Sirius”, and the Moscow Poly was among them.

The format of the NTI Olympiad supposed a team work and solution of practical problems on real equipment. If you want to win, you have to prove that you are a professional: arrange the work process for yourself and the colleagues, read the documentation carefully, stick to the deadlines. “A high-class specialist will not always manage to form a high-class team”, - comments Olga Shabalina, a methodologist of the profile “Self-driven transport systems” and a teacher of the Moscow Poly Engineering School. – “We regulated the teamwork at the second qualifying stage, and before the finals saw to it that the finalists contacted each other, distributed the roles, thought of the mechanism and what problems could arise and how they would solve them”. The winner of the profile “Self-driven transport systems” in 2018 became the team “47ds-ds46”.

In the profile “Engineering biological systems” for the 7-9 grades the highest results were shown by the team “Vacuolele”. Among senior schoolchildren the best team was “Kekule”. By the way, this year a second-year student of the Moscow Poly Nikita Samoylov joined the organizers of the profile. The algorithms for automation of the aquaponic installations functioned on the basis of his IoT-platform “GreenPl” (developed in the framework of the project activity). “Every team has an account on our platform. They see the data of the sensors in their account and can manage the operative device. It is a big success for our project to participate in the final task of the NTI Olympiad and an opportunity to improve additionally the system”, - said Nikita.

The best team of the profile “Communication systems and remote sensing of the Earth” became the team “SMAAAAW”. The secret of their success is in a powerful training. The organizers say that participants of the “SMAAAAW” are the only at the competition, who have studied all the materials, provided by the developers, carefully. In addition, the work was completely coherent: each member had his own task, and by the end of the day gave full account of the progress to his teammates. They were advancing confidently, but in the very end the team “L2Sh” overcame them, when the team “SMAAAAW” encountered a new challenge. Participants of the “L2Sh” were perfect in programming, offering non-standard solutions. As a result, the last day of the Olympiad was very tense, and the winner team overtook the rival just by 10 points.

In the meantime, when the finalists again and again checked up the workability of the systems, developed by them, and were having qualifying racings and introduced last changes, Acting Rector of the Moscow Poly Vladimir Miklushevskiy took part in the business program, in particular – in the round table “Managing the talents of the NTI”. Together with the Assistant to the President of the RF Andrey Fursenko, Head of direction “Young professionals” of the Agency for Strategic Initiatives Dmitriy Peskov, Head of the foundation “Talent and Success” Elena Shmeleva, discussed various ways to create a educational environment for the talented schoolchildren, interested in the engineering activities, from technological clubs to individual educational trajectories and cooperation with companies and startups.

Stratagies of talanted young people support were discussed in the Sirius educational center

From January 23 to 26 -27 the II all-Russian conference “The way to success: strategies of supporting gifted children and young people” took place in the “Sirius” educational center. It was organized by the foundation “Sirius” in partnership with the Ministry of Education and Science of RF. Among the participants there were Andrey Fursenko, Aleksey Kudrin, Dmitriy Peskov, Ivan Bortnik and others. The speakers from the Moscow Poly were Acting Rector Vladimir Miklushevskiy, Dean of the IT faculty Andrey Filippovich, Teacher of the Center for Project Activity Dmitriy Teslenko and Dean of the transport faculty Pablo Iturralde.

The conference was devoted to identifying talented children and, as well, the mechanisms for involve them in the project activity and, further, in high-tech production. At the opening session of the youth section on January 26, the Moscow Poly Acting Rector Vladimir Miklushevskiy made a presentation. “We do believe in you! You are the generation to grow up soon and to come to lead the country, enterprises, regions and industries. I wish you every success!”, - he addressed the participants of the youth conference.

It is not the first year when the Moscow Poly works with talented schoolchildren. It is one of universities – founders of the National Technology Initiative Olympiad (NTIO) and is a co-organizer of the project shift “Big Challenges”, while the Moscow Poly faculty “The engineering school” prepares children to the project competitions in the framework of the retreat school in “Povedniki”.

This year three projects from industrial customers were offered at the conference “The way to success”, on which the schoolchildren might work in “Sirius” under the guidance of the Moscow Poly teachers during the summer project shift. Dean of the transport faculty Pablo Iturralde told the audience about the “Fenix Evolution” case by the company “ASPAS”. The project is aimed at modernization of the racing car “Fenix” to make the prototype more stable when cornering. During the plenary session the team of talented schoolchildren, students and recipient of the Presidential grant developed a mathematical model to pass the algorithm. If, in the source of voting, the project collects necessary number of votes, one more development of the transport faculty will go to “Sirius” as well – a car for disabled people, ordered by the Association Avtonet. To implement the project, it will be necessary to apply technologies for self-drive, in order to adapt the vehicle for those who cannot drive it on their own.

Dean of the IT faculty Andrey Filippovich presented to the children a case “Development of a model of infrastructure for launching the services delivering cargos by means of BPLA”. The schoolchildren, united in teams, were detecting technical restrictions of self-driven vehicles related to solving the problem, developed required safety systems and described the functional part of the program to control the flying devices. According to Andrey Filippovich, interesting ideas concerning developing the project further were born in the interdisciplinary teams, and children expressed their desire to join the development in a distant mode for the time of the summer shift of “Big Challenges”.

A Teacher of the Moscow Poly CPA Dmitriy Teslenko invited participants to develop a sprayer for the agricultural drone of the company “Agrobotics”. The case aimed at designing a more efficient sprayer is meant for the ability to apply well-known physical effects to creation of a specific development. Its goal is to reduce the amount of chemicals for an increased area of spraying.

In addition, January 27, Head of the foundation “Talent and Success” Elena Shmeleva and the Moscow Poly Acting Rector Vladimir Miklushevskiy signed an agreement on cooperation in the framework of holding the concluding stage of the NTI Olympiad in February of this year. Over 20 000 Russian schoolchildren have filed applications for participation in the NTIO, and the best 578 of them came to the finals. It is not the first year when the Moscow Poly organizes the NTIO, and this time the university employees took part in development of the tracks “The systems of communication and Earth remote exploration (Space systems)”, “Engineering biological systems”, “Self-driven vehicles”. All three profiles of the Moscow Poly were included in the draft “List of Olympiads for schoolchildren for 2017/18 academic year”, and thus, the winners will be able to enter universities without admission exams.

The Moscow Poly at the forum The Tutor

From February 13 to 15 a forum “The Tutor” was held in the pavilion 75 of the exhibition center VDNKh. Representatives of HR departments of the major companies and the agencies of the federal and regional authorities, as well as employees of education institutions presented their idea about development of the tutors’ movement in Russia.

Revival of the tutorship is an idea of the Russian President Vladimir Putin. The Moscow Poly takes an active part in development of tutors’ activity in Russia, by means of developing the programs for “The school of tutors”, online courses for the leaders of clubs, in a role of a co-organizer of the forum “The future intellectual leaders of Russia” and of the project shifts at the EC “Sirius”. At the Center for Project Activity (CPA) of the Moscow Poly each student project has its curator, who coordinates the work of the teams on the project and helps to shape a common frame for the professional activity.

Over 13 000 people took part in the inauguration ceremony of the forum “The Tutor”. There were welcome addresses from First Deputy Head of the Presidential Administration Sergey Kiriyenko, Assistant to President Andrey Belousov, Director General of ASI Svetlana Chupsheva, Head of the Foundation “The Talent and The Success” Elena Shmeleva. The speakers emphasized that a tutor is supposed to pass on not just a knowledge, but his life experience and values. 

The forum was visited, in a capacity of experts and visitors, by Acting Rector of the Moscow Poly Vladimir Miklushevskiy, Deans of faculties Andrey Andriushkov and Andrey Filippovich, Chief of the Center for Development of Professional Education (CDPE) of the Moscow Poly Aleksey Ovchinnikov and, as well, by the teachers of the Center for the Project Activity (CPA) and the Engineering School. During awarding of the best tutor’s practices, Head of the Moscow Poly CDA Ilia Lepeshkin received a diploma of a finalist in the nomination “Tutorship in education and clubs’ movement”.

Dean of the Engineering School Andrey Andriushkov conducted a conference “Tutors for new educational institutions”. The participants shared their experience in creation of the sites for communication between tutors and talented children, like “A teacher for Russia”, “Yandex. Lyceum”, EC “Sirius”, open laboratories – fablabs on the basis of the university. Summing up the conference, the moderator emphasized that a child acquires the idea of a meaningful life exactly in the process of a dialog with an unusual adult. Thus, the institute of tutorship makes up for a shortage of meanings, with which school or family often fail to cope.

Head of the Moscow Poly Center for Professional Education Development Aleksey Ovchinnikov became a moderator of the panel discussion among experts in the area of education, representatives of corporations and agencies of authorities “Tutorship for students in the framework of the practice-oriented training”. According to Aleksey, the participants formed a pool of concepts, that are synonyms to the concept “tutor”. Among them there are: a teacher of production training, a mentor and coach. “I would like to separate the concept of a tutor from these other concepts, in order to understand with whom we work”, - mentioned Ovchinnikov. – “Besides, we have to understand, which particular measures of the state support the tutors’ movement needs, so as not to kill informal relations between a tutor and his subordinates”.

Dean of the IT faculty Andrey Filippovich took part in discussion of tutorship for professions of the future. How to teach professions, for which any formalized standards do not exist yet? What kind of relations there will be between a pupil and a tutor in self-educating communities? What skills from humanities will be in demand in the epoch of a new technological revolution? – these and other issues were under discussion of representatives of corporations and educational institutions. Dean shared the experience of the IT faculty in updating educational programs. In his opinion, the rapidly changing world encourages emergence of new educational technologies. At the IT faculty people from industry play roles of curators, and their function is to pass over the knowledge, formed within a certain period, and then to return to their professional activity. The University gives only 80% of required knowledge – a student can take the rest during his internship, from tutors in internet or during his work on the project at a company’s order. “Traditional education, combined with a pointed transfer of unique experience, is an explosive mixture, well preparing us for the future”, - considers Andrey Filippovich.

Deputy Dean of the faculty “Engineering School” Aleksey Fedoseyev took part in discussion “What does a tutor movement in clubs need – regulation or deregulation?”. The experts discussed how the systems of professional standard should develop and whether there is any need for a legal standard, which would regulate the activity of the educational clubs’ tutors. And an employee of the Engineering School, the Moscow Poly student Irina Kuzmina took part in the section “Young tutors of the digital world”. What problems do the tutors encounter, if they are just from 14 to 20 years of age themselves – this topic was under discussion of the graduates of the project-based school “Elevator to the future”, who now conduct the project themselves, thus training other children.


The first all-Russian forum “The Tutor-2018” was arranged by the Agency of Strategic Initiatives with the aim of forming a state program of rendering support to tutorship and, as well, of selecting the best practices to introduce them in the regions of the country. More than 10 000 people from 711 cities and settlements of Russia took part in the work of the forum, over 230 speakers presented 120 lectures and discussions and held master classes in auditoriums and at the stands.

District forums “The Tutor” will be held in the Leningrad, Sverdlovsk, Irkutsk regions, in the Republic Crimea, Udmurt Republic, Stavropol and Primorskiy areas from February 16 to March 6, 2018.

Startups of the Moscow Poly Master Course students have been supported by the accelerator NUMA

Startups of the Master Course students of the Faculty of technological entrepreneurship – Elena Yermoshina and Semen Karpov – have been selected by the international accelerator NUMA. The system of cost calculation for parts manufacturing in processing production “Absolute” and a project of a smart microwave oven “Smart Microwave” received expert and investment support.

The semifinals and the finals of the contest took place at the Moscow office of NUMA. Participants presented their projects in English. As a result of the contest both projects by the Master Course students were selected for the accelerator.

“It is very important for us that the jury members believed in our projects. The acceleration program of NUMA provides a comprehensive help and support to young entrepreneurs: consultations of the Russian and foreign mentors, an opportunity to get in touch with major international companies, investments”, - says the Moscow Poly Master Course student Elena Yermoshina. – “Together with the partner we have already compiled a plan for the project development, having defined directions, at which we did not pay attention earlier”.

According to the rules of education at the Master Course, the students are supposed to think of and develop a startup of their own, solving some technology problem. The system of the cost calculation for parts manufacturing “Absolute” will allow the processing enterprises to automate the processing and the calculation of the order cost, thus reducing the time and material expenditures. The “Smart Microwave” is a microwave oven, equipped with a neuron grid. It scans the product, determines its physical parameters on its own and, basing on that, chooses a heating mode. In everyday life the development enables easy and fast heating of a product up to any required temperature, whether it is a yogurt or a baby food. The technology can also be used in automotive industry, aircraft industry, for manufacture of composite materials.

NUMA is not the first contest where Elena and Semen take part during their studies at the Master Course. The teachers helped them to process an application for the program “Egghead” of the Foundation for Innovations Support, and the project “Absolute” won a grant and was distinguished by representatives of the United Shipbuilding Corporation. It turned out that the ship-building industry is also interested in solution of the problems of calculating the incoming orders, and the students were invited to the company office to discuss a plan for cooperation. While the project “Smart Microwave” interested the woodworking enterprises, because the microwave exposure allows to dry the timber, as well as curing of the polymer binders in the composite materials. At present the developed prototype awaits to be tested at production sites.

Within two years of the Master Course the students conducted a huge work on their projects, having taken advice from the experts of over 200 companies. “The first rule of an entrepreneur – try and understand, whether the market needs your project. Best of all to take an existing problem as a starting point, but not an idea – then there are more chances that the project will be successful”, - considers Elena.

At a contest 3D Boom schoolchildren presented a 3D model of the DNA and the Red Square model

January 25 an official award ceremony of the contest “3D Boom” was held at the Center for Information Technologies “A Smart Citi”. 500 schoolchildren of 6-11 grades presented innovative ideas and projects. Among the nominations of the contest there were “Technology Art: Science-Art & V-Art” and “From Children to Children: Creation of 3D Facilities for Visually Impaired Children”, which were supervised by the Moscow Poly.

The contest was aimed at bringing together schools, universities and business for joint work in a search for innovative ideas and creation of products in demand. The best projects gain support of sponsors and can be implemented. During three months the schoolchildren passed master classes in 3D modeling and printing, prototyping, reverse engineering, and, as well, learnt non-trivial approaches to a search for ideas and to teamwork.

“Technology Art: Science-Art & V-Art” is a nomination, which the Moscow Poly supervised together with a company “EligoVision”. The schoolchildren developed projects at the intersection of art and augmented reality. According to Director of the Center for Technological Support of Education (the Moscow Poly CTSE) Ilia Volnov, this nomination is an initiative of the university, a kind of an experiment, which can be considered successful. “Beauty can be considered a cross-cutting competence, that has to be available in all the engineering activity. There is innovation in the beauty”, - says Ilia Volnov. “If an object is beautiful, it is interesting. There are no words “it is interesting” in the usual engineering activity. There are “it is required” and “it is useful”. And it is only beauty that brings non-standard thinking, originality, creativity and interesting features into the engineering”.

One of the winner projects in the nomination – “The Red Square” – was presented by schoolchildren of the school No 1363. The participants reproduced the Red Square by means of modern technologies of the digital production – prototyping, laser cutting, machine-tools with digital control and 3D scanning. They put special marks on the finished model, which can be induced by a smartphone to get information, for example, about history of a construction, with the help of augmented reality technologies. “The Red Square” took the second place. The first place went to the school No 1506 with a project of a demo model of places of interest on an interactive map of Russia. The idea of the development responds to the project “The Red Square”, though it is more large-scale. The third place was won by a work of school No 2025 “An installation for demonstration of a ballistic trajectory”. Children have invented a device to visualize the physical principles of ballistics in a virtual/augmented reality. The schoolchildren presented a device, shooting with ping-pong balls. With applying to it a technology of augmented reality one can see a trajectory of a ball flight, simultaneously with the rules of its calculations.

Participants of the nomination “From children to Children: Creation of 3D Facilities for Visually Impaired Children” thought of the projects, able to make easier learning for visually impaired children at a secondary school. Among the winners there are: “A Globus-puzzle” of the school Maryina Roshcha named after V. F. Orlov, “A Constructor LEGkO” of the school No 2121 and a 3D model of the DNA from the school No 1575. The last-mentioned project is more than just a contest work, for it is a fulltime order for a Moscow boarding school No2. The 3D model of the DNA, equipped with the braille script and relief graphics and painted with bright colors, will make it easier to study biology for visually impaired children.


The annual contest “3D Boom” is arranged by the Project Office of Education and IT of the Moscow city “A School of New Technologies” jointly with the Expert and Consulting Council of Parents’ Community at Department of Education of Moscow, GAOU DPO “TemaCenter” and a company “Autodesk”. Organizers of the contest nominations are Moscow universities.

Development of the youth entrepreneurship and export of Russian education were discussed at a forum in Sochi

From February 14 to 16, a Russian Investment Forum was held in Sochi. The event is usually held with participation of Chairman of the Russian Government Dmitriy Medvedev, representatives of big business and official authorities. Acting Rector Vladimir Miklushevskiy and Head of the Research and Education Center (REC) “Technologies Forge” of the Moscow Poly Arseniy Uralov visited the forum.

Over 4 000 participants gathered to the Sochi forum for discussion of the issues of economic development. The key topics were investments in regions and in human capital, support to entrepreneurship and digitalization of economy.

Minister of Education and Science of the RF Olga Vasilyeva spoke at the session “Export of the Russian education: new challenges and the strategy for the future” about the tangible contribution of education exports to the economies of many countries. In 2017 the Ministry of Education and Science compiled a consortium of 39 universities, including the Moscow Poly, and initiated a priority project “Development of the export potential of the Russian education system” (“Education exports”). National education has always been a positive brand at the world market, the Russian educational standards are respected all over the world. It concerns primarily the preschool education and the special professional education, creative professions and engineering training. According to the Minister, to attract more foreign students to study in Russia, the first thing to do is to improve the regulatory framework, simplify obtaining visas for foreigners for a legal stay in the country, pay attention at everyday life conditions and, as well, train teachers, who would be able to work within various joint international educational programs.

“Traditionally, there are foreign students studying in the Moscow Poly, and we intend to continue enabling foreign citizens to come to us for studies of technical disciplines and humanities, and acquire practical skills. We should pay attention at the BRICS countries, with whom we have a long-standing cooperation, and at Viet-Nam. Preparation of high quality Master programs is a way that can allow Russia to develop its education economics”, - considers Vladimir Miklushevskiy.

In addition, the Day of Youth Entrepreneurship was held in the framework of the forum. President of accelerators’ association, Head of the REC “Technologies Forge” at the Moscow Poly Arseniy Uralov was a moderator of the session “Co-working centers as a new form of state support for beginner entrepreneurs”. He informed the audience that in 2017 there were 307 co-working centers registered in Russia, and 107 of them – in Moscow. “The flexible organization of the working space and shaping of an inner business culture are of interest for the community of entrepreneurs, especially among those who mainly work online”, - considers Arseniy Uralov. Besides, the expert spoke at the session of the Ministry of Economic Development of the RF “Development of the youth entrepreneurship and innovative creative activities”.

A quest for schoolchildren In love with engineering was held at the Moscow Poly

February 14 the Moscow Poly Engineering School (faculty) held a profession-oriented quest “In love with engineering”. Senior schoolchildren answered questions on the knowledge of engineering specialties and solved non-standard problems in physics.

The traditional event of the faculty is aimed at improving popularity of engineering. More than 100 schoolchildren of engineering classes took part in the holiday. This time children were grouped in teams to fight for the scores-hearts. The winners were the participants that collected most of all “hearts” from the teachers for correct answers to the questions. The quest was developed by students of the 3rd course, studying on the training direction “Management” in the framework of their project activity.

And, as well, about importance of the project activity for specialists of engineering training directions”.

The children, visiting the Transport faculty, could understand what industrial design is about and try their abilities in development of a logo for a car of the future. What differs a screw from an anchor bolt, or a nut from a stud? – children had to answer these and other questions at the Faculty of engineering. In the engineering version of the game “Guess a word” they had to explain to other participants of their team the word “LED” or the name of the programming language “Python”.
