On April 11, Tuesday, Olga Yu. Vasilyeva, Russian Federation Minister for Education and Science, officially opened the unique research and production complex “Composites of Russia” – the leading structural subdivision of Bauman MSTU which is implementing a range of integrated projects aimed at the modernization of the country’s economy. The resources for a full manufacturing cycle of composite-material products – from designing to immediate output – are focused in the complex. Thus, the Center majors in finding solutions for engineering tasks in the field of aircraft-, ship- and car-manufacturing industries, medical and pharmaceutical industries.
In the course of an official opening of the complex the unique educational project was started. Olga Vasilyeva personally opened the first “Composite Lesson” for pupils. During the lesson a video-conference was held with innovation centers from two regions – Technopolis “Moscow” and KNRTU-KAI Engineering lyceum. In Moscow and Tatarstan – two pilot regions – educational courses on composites were also arranged for school children. In the nearest future such lessons shall be introduced all through the country. “Only those who consider it important, interesting and topical work in the science!” – the Minister noted.
For the record: the classes on composite materials have been successfully given in the KNRTU-KAI Engineering Lyceum since the previous academic year. Our students have already performed a number of projects and won the second prize in the First Youth Championship in Russia «Junior Composite Battle» as part of the First International Championship Composite Battle World Cup Kazan 2016.
