On August 16, Altair Children's Technopark of RTU MIREA organized an excursion for children from Syria. The event was organized jointly with the Russian movement of schoolchildren during the visit of foreign delegation to Moscow.
The delegation of 45 Syrian schoolchildren aged 8 to 17 who study Russian, and the children of our compatriots living in the territory of the Syrian state came to Moscow to learn about Russian culture.
On the premises of Altair technopark the young Syrians were welcomed by Dmitry Leonov, director of the children's technopark, Ksenia Perevozchikova, head of the Biomedical and chemical technologies cluster of laboratories, and Svyatoslav Litvinov, head of the Radioelectronics cluster of laboratories. The foreign visitors had an excursion to the technopark laboratories where they were able to test virtual reality devices in practice, learned how modern chemical laboratories work, and visited an impromptu exhibition of electronic equipment.
The meeting was also attended by Madyan Khasan, representative of the Ministry of Education of Syria and the coordinator of training in Russian in Latakia, Sergei Konovalov, Deputy Chairman of the All-Russian public organization of veterans Combat Brotherhood (we would like to remind you that some time ago a cooperation agreement was signed between RTU MIREA and the organization Combat Brotherhood). Moreover, children - representatives of the Moscow regional branch of the Russian movement of schoolchildren also visited Altair.
Young delegates from Syria left the technopark overwhelmed by a lot of impressions: they made new friends and contacts via social networks, and got gifts from RTU MIREA and directly from Altair - figurines that the children were able to print on a 3D printer, and chemical crystals in test tubes created during the test visual training. Syrian schoolchildren will long remember the opportunity to participate in practical research experiments.
