In order to create a single educational space for the formation and development of research skills and behavior and to involve children in R&D activities, municipal budgetary educational institution “Children’s Ecological Station” has developed a project “Research and Design activity in modern educational space of Novy Urengoy city”.
Successful start of the project was made possible through the financial support of OJSC Severneftegazprom.
The installation webinar was attended by representatives of the Education Department of Novy Urengoy Administration and 20 educational institutions of the city.
“Supporting education initiatives and projects is one of the key directions of charitable activity in our Company. Furthermore, in cooperation with Administration of Novy Urengoy every year we invest funds to improve the material and technical base of kindergartens and schools, we attract students to participate in creative competitions, arrange professional orientation trips to our production facilities”, Vladimir Dmitruk, General Director of OJSC Severneftegazprom, said.
Thanks to the financial participation of Severneftegazprom educational institutions and teachers will be able to work directly with highly qualified specialists of the leading educational institutions of the country, having extensive experience in conducting research activities with children, as well as to get their professional advice.
“The fact of such a support shows a significant shift in minds of our society. There are people who understand that by investing in education they invest in the future. To develop our country, society and the economy it’s not enough to collaborate only with universities which train specialists for the companies. It is essential to start earlier, right ‘from the school bench’, Gennady Lipetsky, Director of the “Children’s Ecological Station”, remarked.
Under the project, training courses for teachers and an educational seminar will be arranged. As a result, the program of comprehensive educational measures will be developed by every educational institution of Novy Urengoy on the basis of R&D. Drafts of these projects are to be presented in December, and the specialists of All-Russian public movement of creative teachers “The Researcher” will conduct their examination.
Municipal budgetary educational institution “Children’s Ecological Station” is a regional branch of the All-Russian public movement of creative teachers “The Researcher” and a resource center for science education in Yamal-Nenets Autonomous district..
