The University students demonstrated the possibilities of a polymer 3D printer: technique and the real figures that it printed.
The head of Moscow Poly congress and exhibition activity Pavel Arkatov noted that the University tried to display at the festival all educational opportunities that the University offers.
“We`re demonstrating the elaborations that our students make within their “project activity”. From the day one Moscow Poly students cooperate with our industrial partners and carry out various projects commissioned by industry representatives and get feedback. Starting from 2 and 3 year of studies students serve internships and get employed. All of that allows us to train highly-demanded and top-tier specialists”, - said the host.
“I hope that all participants that managed to design their unmanned vehicle that would meet the customer`s demand felt all the benefits of the project work. It allows to identify the problem, set the goals and find solutions to the problem, and what`s more important – achieve the result. All Moscow Poly students without exceptions are engaged in the project activity. It teaches them to learn to work in teams but at the same time demonstrate personal responsibility for their part of work, as well as teaches them to turn their ideas into reality”, - noted Ivan Petukhov.
In addition to that, the future students have participated in the “Experts in Advertising” quiz and visited the VR dimension through wearing special VR glasses. For the active participation and taking the prize-winning places the young participants received special gifts - Moscow Poly merch.
