Bauman MSTU and Rossotrudnichestvo held workshops for children in Brussels
On 5–7 March, Inginirium BMSTU hosted workshops for Russian children living in Brussels as part of the international series of events New Digital Technologies at School. The events are supported by the Federal Agency for the Commonwealth of Independent States Affairs, Compatriots Living Abroad, and International Humanitarian Cooperation (Rossotrudnichestvo) and are aimed at enhancing the prestige of Russian science abroad.
Students of grades 1-5 learned about what 3D pens made of and how they work and created their project using additive technologies. High school children learned how composites are made using vacuum infusion, and in a practical part of the workshop, they built an airplane wing in VR. Thanks to this practical format, the participants learned about production technologies, which they would have never be able to learn about in a regular class.
Inginirium BMSTU also presented its online Young Engineer course for students and teachers. The Teacher’s Module helps teachers learn which extracurriculum activities can be performed at school and how can they be organised. The Young Engineer module for school children helps them get a general understanding of the entire process, from an idea to its implementation.
