The Educational Center Sirius in Sochi summed up the results of the National Engineering Olympiad of the National Technological Initiative (NTI). As a result of the final tests, the 11 best teams and 18 winners in the individual classification were defined. The main prize is 100 USE points in core subjects upon admission to the leading Russian universities.

RVC and ASI organize the NTI Olympiad in association with the largest technical universities and corporations. Its goal is to search and develop talents for the National Technological Initiative, a program to create fundamentally new markets and ensure global technological leadership in Russia by 2035. The Olympiad is held in 17 educational profiles that correspond to the industry priorities of NTI. Among them there are unmanned vehicles, large data and machine training, robotics, nanotechnology, small space vehicles, biotechnology, etc.

In 2018, as many as 20,000 schoolchildren from all over Russia claimed to participate in the competition". As a result of qualifying rounds, 578 participants reached the finals. Around 360 of them were invited to the final on-site stage in the first 9 profiles of the Sochi Olympics, which took place in the format of team engineering competitions. Within the framework of the finals, high school students worked on solving specific technological problems. The participants of the "Space Systems" profile had to assemble the operating model of the microsatellite, contestants in the profile of "Neurotechnology" developed a control system for the bionic prosthesis of the brush, and the finalists of the "Nanotechnology" direction modified the bacteria for the production of the plasmid — the ring DNA molecule, so that it could be embedded in living cells and change their properties.

According to the results of several days of the competition, 11 best teams and 18 winners of the NTI Olympiad in individual competitions were chosen. The final place of the contestants was determined by the results of the subject tour and the team's place in the rating of the profile. The winners by the total number of points were schoolchildren from St. Petersburg, Novosibirsk, Snezhinsk, Kaliningrad, Tula, Blagoveshchensk, Tambov, Nefteyugansk, Tomsk and Moscow. The profiles of the NTI Olympiad are included in the official list of the Olympiads of the Russian Council of School Olympiads (RCSO). Hence, the winners and prize-winners will be able to enter the organizing universities without exams or receive additional points upon admission.

For three years the NTI Olympiad has accumulated a whole community of talented, active young people

— Over the three years around the NTI Olympiad, a whole community of talented, active young people has formed, who are capable of becoming successful entrepreneurs and scientists in the near future," the General Director of RVC Alexander Povalko assured us. — Over the five days at the Olympiad, we were observing the work of well-coordinated engineering teams, who are ready to create competitive solutions in various fields of science and business today. The task of RVC is to support these talents at the earliest stage and offer tools for their further development!

"Our main goal is that such competitions as the NTI Olympiad become available not only to 360 children who took part in the final in Sirius, and not even to 20,000 participants in the qualifying stage, but to 2 million children in all schools across the country," says the Director of “Young Professionals” line, Dmitry Peskov.

In his opinion, the history of WorldSkills can prompt the right way: first it's a competition, then the emergence within the framework of these competitions of successful practices, with the help of which it is possible to formulate new educational standards. They will become mandatory in the nearest future for the entire education system.

— It is necessary that all the tasks that seem extreme, impossible, fantastic at the NTI Olympiad, in a few years, become the requirements for the normal activities of children in every school in the country," Director of the "Young Professionals" ASI Dmitry Peskov commented.

The final stages of the remaining eight profiles of the NTI Olympiad will be held in March-April 2018 at the sites of partner universities in six Russian regions, from Vladivostok to St. Petersburg.

"The final of the NTI Olympiad ended in Sochi — and the day after tomorrow will begin in Moscow and will continue in Tomsk, Kazan, St. Petersburg, Vladivostok and Yekaterinburg. The NTI Olympiad is hosted by the most well-equipped spaces of the country: "Sirius" provided its excellent laboratories and workshops, MAI — its test ground, MEPI — a unique scientific installation "NEVOD", Fablab Polytech — the power of its digital production, UrFU, TPU, Innopolis, and FEFU — their laboratories. The intensive and complex content of the NTI Olympiad would be impossible to gather without the cooperation of various players: from technology companies and universities to schools that have become sites for the training of participants," Alexei Fedoseyev, president of the Association of Technology Circle Members, secretary of the Organizing Committee of the NTI Olympiad, said.
