More than 22 thousand schoolchildren from all regions of Russia took part in the Junior National Technology Olympiad

“76% of the participants in the Olympiad live outside the cities with a population of over one million, and more than 2 thousand children – from cities with a population of less than 50 thousand people. As in the previous season, most of the NTO Junior participants live and study in the Moscow region – more than nine thousand schoolchildren. In second place in terms of the number of participants is the Novosibirsk region. Also, St. Petersburg, the Tomsk region and the Republic of Bashkortostan were among the top five leaders in terms of the number of NTO juniors., – said the general director of ANO “Russia – the country of opportunities” Alexey Komissarov. – Among the contestants of the Olympiad, the proportion of girls was over 40%. It’s great that they participate in the project almost as actively as the boys. Testing of the assignments of the qualifying stage has begun. And already 180 people have coped well with all the tasks and scored the maximum possible 100 points. This is an excellent result, which shows how many talented, motivated and developed schoolchildren in our country are “.

The scoring to determine who will receive an invitation to the final of the competition continues. It is planned that the number of finalists based on the results of the qualifying round will exceed 600 people.

Competitions are held in five technological areas: “Technologies for the virtual world”, “Technologies for space”, “Technologies for the world of robots”, “Technologies for the environment” and “Technologies for humans”. The most popular among the participants was the sphere “Technologies for the virtual world”, dedicated to the development of computer games on scientific and engineering topics.

“The third season of the Junior National Technology Olympiad has started successfully. We are convinced that the task already in secondary school to acquaint children with modern technologies, to involve them in solving real problems is becoming more and more urgent. An important goal of the NTI Circle movement is to help schoolchildren participating in our projects consciously choose a professional trajectory and build an effective educational course in order to become not only demanded specialists, but also leaders of the technological future of Russia, – noted the leader of the NTI working group “Circle movement” Dmitry Zemtsov. “More than 70% of the winners of our Olympiad say that NTO helped them decide on the choice of their specialty, and we hope that this figure will continue to grow.”

Participants who have taken the top lines of the overall rating will be invited to the final competition.

The winners will receive diplomas, useful prizes and the opportunity to take part in other projects and competitions of the NTI Circle movement and partners. In addition, participation in competitions for grades 5-7 will help to gain the necessary experience for a successful performance in the National Technology Olympiad for grades 8-11, the winners of which receive serious advantages when entering the country’s leading engineering universities.

The Junior National Technology Olympiad is being implemented within the framework of the federal project “Social Elevators for Everyone” of the national project “Education”.
