On November 25th, the first Russian children’s ‘Quantorium’ high-tech IT park opened in Naberezhnye Chelny.
As the republican press office told Construction.ru, Tatarstan was one of the three pilot regions in Russia in which this project was chosen to be launched. In 2015 – 2016, 420 pupils will, in the ‘Quantorium’ high-tech park, be taught design and programming for manned vehicles and unmanned aircraft, neurosurgery and neurobiology, laser technology, etc, by trainers who will have taken courses in the Strategic Initiatives Agency in Moscow. Pupils of years 5-11 will be admitted to the center after winning competitions and Olympiads under the Ministry of Education of Russia.
Quantoriums are to become a new model of Russian youth’s scientific and technical creative work.
