“Star Flotilla-2” project represents KSTU at the first project session of “Marinet” in the Skolkovo Innovation Center

     Fr om 10 to 28 June, the first project session “Marinet” for schoolchildren is held on the basis of the Skolkovo Innovation Center, organized by KSTU together with Sea Innovations, one of the participants of the Marinet market of the National Technology Initiative, together with the Skolkovo Foundation and the University 20.35 .The main purpose of the “Marinet” project session will be formation of a new approach to the development of the ocean among teenagers: ecology and a human are in the spotlight.

     In the framework of the session, 5 thematic projects will take place: “Star Flotilla-2”, “Digital Model of the Pond”, “Digital Sextant”, “Interactive Edutainment” and “Environmental monitoring based on ERS”.

“We really enjoyed the format of the project session implemented by the “Sirius” educational center under the “Big Challenges” programme. Fr om the very beginning, we participate in it as the organizers and partners of the “Development of the Arctic and the World Ocean” track," Alexander Pinsky, head of the Marinet industry center of the National Technology Initiative said.

     According to him, implementation of practical projects by schoolchildren with the direct participation of companies and research centers allows achieving several results at once. First, it is the popularization of domestic new technologies: the children see that there are promising areas for professional implementation in the country, the most advanced developments are being conducted, and there are world-class companies and universities where they can realize themselves in the future. Secondly, this project-based learning is probably the best approach for preparing schoolchildren and students for moving into adulthood: when you need to independently find and implement solutions from different areas at once, wh ere there are no pre-prepared answers, wh ere you must be able to work in a team and focus on the bottom line. Thirdly, it is an opportunity for companies and universities to better advise their offer to the society, to show the general public what the value and benefits of their work are.

     Representatives of leading scientific and educational centers: Institute of Oceanology of the Russian Academy of Sciences, M.V. Lomonosov Moscow State University, Admiral Makarov State University of Maritime and Inland Shipping, Kaliningrad State Technical University, World Wildlife Fund, the "Solar Regatta" project, ScanEx RDC, NBICS Laboratories and the "Marinet" industry center will tell the project participants about the most modern trends in the development of the maritime industry.

     For immersion in the subject area, the children will undergo basic theoretical training in such areas as programming, three-dimensional design, computer image processing, robotics, hydroacoustics, geophysics, astronomy and navigation, and personnel training. These areas are among the most promising for professional development, because, on the one hand, there is active growth on the world market, and on the other hand, domestic companies are successfully developing in these spheres.

     The knowledge gained will be immediately applied to solve practical tasks: as part of the Star Flotilla-2 project, schoolchildren will have to design and build a prototype floating city in which people can live in the ocean, using “clean” technologies to meet the need for housing, energy, water and food without harming marine ecosystems. In the course of the Digital Pond project, using real measurements, schoolchildren will build a coastline, a digital model of the bottom relief and estimate the thickness of the silty deposits of the reservoir. In the framework of the "Digital Sextant" project, the participants must develop and manufacture a prototype of the digital sextant, including an electronic block-calculator.

      The project “Development of High-Tech Interactive Edutainment in Marine Technologies” is aimed at creating a game format in the form of a computer game for teaching marine robotics technologies. In the project called “Oil Fields” schoolchildren will have to create a search service for offshore oil fields based on Earth space monitoring data, which should be a significant help at the regional and exploratory stages of offshore exploration to predict oil and gas, assess areas of oil and gas accumulation and identify local structures for deep drilling. In the future, the project session of “Marinet” is planned to be an annual event, expanding its geography and scale to 100-150 participants and 20-30 projects in the field of high marine technologies.
