The Energy of Start -2018: program participants will come up with how to heat and energize the Far North
Acceptance of applications for participation in the III All-Russian program for schoolchildren the Energy of Start continues. More than 1,000 students from 7 to 10 classes from 16 regions of Russia will create devices for power supply in a climate of the Far North.
The goal of the All-Russian program for schoolchildren the Energy of Start - is popularizing knowledge about energy among schoolchildren and identifying the most promising high school students interested in mastering the energy profession. The organizers of the Energy of Start program are the Global Energy Association, JSC "System Operator of the Unified Energy System" and the Fund "Reliable Change".
It should be noted that the theme of the contest of engineering solutions meets the strategy for attracting talented youth to the fuel and energy industry and using the intellectual potential of young people to solve real practical problems facing the fuel and energy complex of Russia. Renewable energy sources (RES) as well as their management systems, are recommended as priority solutions for the contest: mini and macro hydroelectric power plants, wind power plants, solar thermal and power stations, heat pumps, various storage tanks and other existing sources energy. Also within the framework of the contest will be considered technical devices: sensors, simple energy-saving devices, superstructure systems for the smart house, smart home management system and feedback and visualization systems.
The authors of the best works of the Energy of Start will have the opportunity to develop their knowledge and get deeper acquainted with the electric power industry. In particular, they are waiting for the International Summer Education Forum the Energy of Youth, where the final of the contest of engineering solutions will take place. The most promising participants of the Energy of Start will also be included in the training program for entering the profile energy universities and the long-term personnel reserve of the energy companies of Russia.
"We closely follow the development of engineering and technical creativity of schoolchildren and students in Russia and abroad, and welcome the interaction with energy companies investing in the intellectual potential of youth. Participants and works of the engineering solutions contest are of strategic importance for stimulating innovation in the field of technical education and fuel and energy complex. The contest of engineering solutions of the Energy of Start program allows us to see the vector of their intellectual needs and combine them in the technical sciences at an early stage in the formation of the technical intellect of students, "says Igor Lobovsky, President of the Global Energy Association.
The Energy of Start program helps school students to establish their future profession and get acquainted with industry specialists, also to be inspired by a personal example and communication with the best scientists in the field of energy - laureates of the Global Energy Prize. As one of them notes, the laureate of 2015, professor of the University of North Carolina Jayant Baliga, "I was lucky to be with my idea at the right time and in the right place. This allowed my dream to come true. "
Applications for participation in the contest are accepted until 01.12.2017, and the entries are submitted until 01.03.2018. The results of the contest will be announced on 03/31/2018.
