The guys became the winners of the regional championship, which took place at the Technograd innovation and educational complex at VDNKh.

Students of the Mosgormash Children’s Technopark and School No. 627 will represent Russia at the DJI RoboMaster Youth international championship in aircraft robotics and machine vision in China. The guys won the regional championship, which took place on April 17 at the innovation and educational complex “Technograd” at VDNKh.

“Robots have long been used not only in industry and manufacturing, but also in our daily life. It is not surprising that the younger generation masters the basics of robotics from the elementary grades of school – and in this they are helped by the children’s technoparks in Moscow. Today, 11 out of 18 operating children’s technoparks are working with various programs in the field of robotics, including elements of a smart home, space and underwater robotics, as well as microelectronics, ”said the head

Department of Entrepreneurship and Innovative Development of the City of Moscow Alexey Fursin.

The organizer of the competition, which took place in Technograd at VDNKh, was the resource center. The skills of the children were assessed by certified trainers and judges from representatives of the companies “Impulse” and “Airborne unmanned systems”. The latter is the official Russian distributor of DJI – the world leader in the production of multicopters, microcontrollers and video equipment, as well as the founder of the RoboMaster competition. A feature of the RoboMaster Youth competition was that the participants controlled the robots through the monitors, sitting with their backs to the track.

Eight teams from the capital’s schools No. 508, 1547, 627, 2065, 1564, the Moscow Technological College and the Moscow and Mosgormash children’s technology parks fought for the victory.

Battle of the robots: how the DJI RoboMaster Youth Regional Championship will be held

The International Robotics Tournament RoboMaster has been held in China since 2015. More than 200 student teams from all over the world take part in it every year. The competition will take place when the restrictions are lifted and the epidemiological situation allows.

The resource center was established by the Department of Entrepreneurship and Innovative Development last year. Among his tasks are the organization of Moscow championships and the introduction of effective models of additional education, as well as the formation of a personnel reserve for leading Moscow enterprises.

Earlier, the resource center held regional competitions in Moscow for such contests as First Element and First Lego League. The children’s technopark “Mosgormash” acts as a reference platform for the preparation of participants.
