Participants of the “Practices of the Future” school created a greenhouse for growing vegetables in Kamchatka.
Participants of the first project school “Practices of the Future” of the Circle Movement of the National Technology Initiative (NTI) in Kamchatka presented technological projects to solve the problems of the region. TASS writes about it.
It is noted that for three weeks 90 schoolchildren worked in three directions: design, research and the direction of remote sensing of the earth. Thus, the design team created a “smart” greenhouse that will allow growing vegetables, fruits and herbs in Kamchatka all year round. Another project is the introduction of digital solutions for the region’s national parks, such as bracelets with an SOS button, drone monitoring, fire sensors, and a mobile application with maps, tickets, and event announcements.
As part of the research direction, high school students studied the environment. In “remote sensing of the earth”, schoolchildren were engaged in calculating the economic cost of not extinguishing fires. In addition, they proposed new routes for grazing deer herds, comparing the places of volcanic ash emissions with pastures of animals.
“The main task of the project school is to immerse students in the key problems of the region. We attract specialists from real activities to conduct the school, with their help schoolchildren can work on projects that are important for the development of the region, receive an objective expert assessment and then continue working on ideas after the school, ”said Alexander Chikurov, program director of the project school.
