In 2020, new programs were launched in the children’s technopark, training in which was conducted offline and online. One of them was the course “Young Aviator”. Its listeners get acquainted with the principles of aerodynamics and the laws of aviation, the device of aircraft, get practical skills in the manufacture of flying models of aircraft and experience flying on an airplane simulator. And within the framework of the “Engineers of the Future” course, schoolchildren master the basics of transformation and use of materials, energy, information, objects of the natural and social environment. In the process of training, children come up with and create unique projects to solve global problems of society. Since this year, the technology park has been studying building information modeling (BIM) technologies.
Digital architecture, or BIM-modeling in construction
Several professions – marketer, designer, engineer, manager, HR specialist, economist, logistician – cover the course “Life Cycle Management”. Children are taught to work in a team, develop communication skills and leadership skills, create presentations and successfully present them to an audience using public speaking skills. An independent course is also devoted to creating presentations.
For those who are keen on creativity, the program “PRO-art” was launched. Teachers talk about the history of art, analyze in detail modern techniques in it, and even teach how to apply various directions in everyday life. And for preschoolers and junior schoolchildren, the Fairy Tale Architecture program is open. Here, young students are engaged in creativity, get acquainted with architectural styles and acquire basic skills in the profession.
Students of the children’s technopark MFLA “Naukograd”, under the guidance of experienced mentors, not only master various directions, but also learn the basics of project activities and participate in professional competitions and championships. Among them are the international competitions in working professions WorldSkills, the championship of working professions among preschoolers and primary schoolchildren KidSkills, the international competition for advanced solutions and practices BRICS Future Skills Challenge 2020, the Olympics of the circle movement “National Technology Initiative”, the competition “My country – my Russia” other.

“Naukograd” is also a partner of the project of vocational guidance of schoolchildren “Ticket to the Future” and the Moscow international cyber festival Rukami.
Together with the educational partner, the Moscow Information Technology University – the Moscow Institute of Architecture and Civil Engineering, the students of the Naukograd children’s technopark participate in the Neurourban Studies project. Its task is to assess the comfort and influence of the urban environment on the psycho-emotional state of a person. The research is being conducted within the framework of the competition of socio-economic projects and digital solutions “Archipelago 20.35”.
In early December, a team of 12 students from the Yauza school, who were trained at Naukograd, developed a project for a mobile hospital on the site of the technopark. He became one of the finalists of the VIII Moscow International Engineering Forum.
An interactive museum of the development of science and technology operates on the basis of the children’s technopark MFLA “Naukograd”. Guests can see a music box, Edison’s phonograph, gramophone, the first telegraph and telegraph key, various measuring instruments, one of the first cameras, typewriters and dozens of other interesting exhibits. This museum has become one of the venues for the Olympics “Museums. Parks. Estates “… And in January 2021, the Prism of Time exhibition will open here, organized jointly with the St. Petersburg National Research University of Information Technologies, Mechanics and Optics. Its theme will be Art & Science. Young visitors will learn about the interaction of light and color, get acquainted with holographic technologies, stereo and 3D visualization, and also see optoclones – an ultra-realistic full-color hologram created by ITMO University in collaboration with the Greek Institute of Holography.
In total, there are 18 children’s technoparks in Moscow, which interact with 80 industrial and 36 educational partner institutions. Technoparks were created for vocational guidance of children and adolescents aged from seven to 18 years. Every year, more than 150 thousand schoolchildren study in them; they can choose an interesting direction for themselves from a variety of options. Among the areas presented are information technology, robotics, microelectronics, 3D modeling, new materials, auto and aircraft design, natural sciences and much more.
