UrBC, Magnitogorsk, December 19, 2018. Quantorium Children’s Tech Park opened at G.I.

According to MMK’s Information, PR & Advertising Department, Quantorium Children’s Parks are free-of-charge, extracurricular training sites fitted with the most advanced equipment available. The goal is to help train new, highly skilled engineers as well as design, test, and launch innovative technologies.

Quantorium Parks are meant to educate young men and women in a number of highly relevant fields from robotics and mini-satellite design to laser technologies to drone modeling. A project on affordable extracurricular training for children covers the opening of eighty-five children’s tech parks in different parts of Russia by 2021. The funding will get supplied from the federal budget resources.

The park is part of the federally run special-purpose program in the field of education development and got set up with support from Governor of Chelyabinsk Region Boris Dubrovsky. Quantorium Park in Magnitogorsk got funded by MMK, Magnitogorsk State Technical University, and money from the federal and Chelyabinsk Region’s budgets. RUB 70 million will get directed to the park setup and development in 2018-2020 all in all.
