From April 8 to 13, the Academy of Digital Technologies hosted the final stage of the national technology Olympiad in the “Scientific Media Communication” profile. The developer was the Higher School of Media Communications and Public Relations of the Humanitarian Institute in partnership with the Academy of Digital Technologies. The partners of the profile are the Higher School of Economics and the St. Petersburg State University of Industrial Technologies and Design.

The Olympics were held in three stages and began in September 2023. At all stages: subject, qualifying and final, teachers of GSMISO took a direct active part in the development of teaching materials and tasks for subject rounds; conducting classes in online and offline formats; in determining evaluation criteria for the roles of “Scientific consultant”, “Screenwriter, journalist”, “PR specialist”, “SMM manager”; in the expert assessment of the works of the finalist teams.

The “Scientific Media Communication” profile is a unique direction that combines digital and humanitarian components. The high interest in the profile is associated with its relevance, since it is included in one of the areas of Russian national projects “Science and Universities”. More than 1,500 schoolchildren applied to participate this season. 39 schoolchildren of grades 9-11 from 14 regions of Russia reached the finals of the profile. For a whole week, high school students created a unique media product that could tell about the most advanced technologies in the fashion industry. The final test was the creation of a virtual fitting room.

To successfully complete the final task, participants needed to master augmented reality technologies, metaverses, and become familiar with online shows and virtual fitting rooms. Experts from the field of fashion and high technology helped them in this. The contestants also attended master classes from profile developers and leading universities in St. Petersburg, including Polytechnic University. The schoolchildren attended a concert in the White Hall, as well as a lecture by the director of the Higher School of Media Communications and Public Relations, Marina Arkannikova, on the topic “Geopolitical challenges: in search of a value-based picture of the world. Meanings of time.”

For a week, participants became journalists, scientific consultants, web developers, camera operators, 3D and media designers. They conducted an experiment revealing the essence of the technology, developed a plan for the preparation and visual presentation of the material, and filmed and processed photo and video material using CGI technologies. The result of the work was an interactive 3D website, a group on a social network and an augmented reality application, which most accurately, vividly and clearly explain the principles of the technology for a youth audience.

The winners of the profile were Danila Evdokimov and Victoria Suchkova. The Air Force team won the team competition. At the award ceremony, the director of the Center for work with applicants, Artem Egupov, reminded the children that the winners and prize-winners of the profile receive additional points upon admission to the Polytechnic.

“I congratulate all the final winners. The guys demonstrated not only their knowledge in the field of digital communications and augmented reality technologies, but also showed their resistance to stress, endurance, and ability to work in a team, noted Marina Arkannikova. — I congratulate the team of teachers of our school, the curator of the nomination, Associate Professor of the Higher School of Microbiology and Social Sciences of the State Institute of St. Petersburg Tamara Tarakanova, for the high professionalism in the development and organization of the federal-scale Olympiad, which they have been demonstrating for the third year. I see with what immersion in work and with what attention they treat each participant. This gives me a feeling of pride for Polytechnic University!”
