Technology camp for schoolchildren took place in London

Compressed file

The London School of Mathematics and Programming held a technology camp at the representative office of Rossotrudnichestvo in London. The camp participants studied a set of systems used in operating unmanned vehicles as well as assembled and programmed their own radar installations for cartographic analysis.

Older children learned to program in Python and Java languages, learned a lot about cryptography, blockchain and cryptocurrencies. The younger participants of the camp deepened their understanding of the basic algorithmic constructions through the Scratch visual programming environment. 3D modeling classes, where children learned how to work with geometric shapes and created their own project, helped develop children’s spatial thinking.

The camp participants developed a computer race game, assembled their own cars and organised real races. They also examined the links between software and hardware during obstacle detection and edging lesson using ROBBO Robots. The training also discussed physical laws associated with the movement: the children designed and assembled “Russian roller coaster” and held competitions in dowspeed balls. Mathematics and chess classes were held for all age groups.

The London School of Mathematics and Programming based at the representative office of Rossotrudnichestvo was founded in 2015. The school offers classes in mathematics, programming, chess, as well as workshops on interdisciplinary sciences.

International math and robotic competitions are regularly held on the basis of the school. The London School of Mathematics and Programming currently has five branches and teaches classes in Russian and English.
