Schoolchildren of Stavropol again plunged into the world of robots. In the North Caucasus Federal University, the Winter School of Robotics - 2018 was held. It was traditionally organized by the Educational Center "Virtual Worlds”, which prepared a rich program for the children.

During the school holidays, the participants of the "Virtual Worlds” managed to do a lot. The guys got acquainted with the anthropomorphic robot AR-600 from the educational and scientific laboratory of the ITI "Robotic Systems”, as well as independently developed robotic systems of the center. The opportunity to assemble and program Lego robots was presented to the children themselves, who then gladly made a robot tournament.

Huge interest was caused by classes with unmanned aerial vehicles - quadrocopters. The basics of 3D modeling and 3D printing allowed children to see in reality how complex technical devices work and print spinners for prizes in a robot tournament.

Teachers of the center also explained to the listeners the basics of robotics, microelectronics, cryptography, information protection, digital image processing and mobile application development. In addition to daily classes, schoolchildren were involved in developing and entertaining games.

The guys were delighted with the excursion to the scientific and educational center for psychological support of personal and professional development, where they were shown various equipment, including a "polygraph” or a "lie detector”. No less emotion is left in the children from car simulators with whom they met at the NCFU Engineering Institute.

After the successful completion of the curriculum, all students received certificates from the Institute of Information Technology and Telecommunications of NCFU. As part of the educational programs of the educational center, schoolchildren received a lot of positive emotions and new knowledge and for a long time thanked the organizers for such an interesting school.

And from March 26 to March 31, during the spring school holidays, the Educational Center "Virtual Worlds” of the NCFU plans to hold the Spring School of Robotics - 2018 and the annual Robotics Festival - 2018 for schoolchildren in the city of Stavropol.

Additional developmental programs for students are planned in June – July: "Summer School of Robotics”, "Summer School of Programming”, "Summer IT School”, "Summer School of Microelectronics”, "Summer School of Virtual Reality” and others. The duration of the programs, their content and dates can be clarified by calling 8-905-446-88-54 - ZamiraMuhamedalievnaAlbekova (Acting Director of the Educational Center "Virtual Worlds" of the NCFU).
