Unique meteorological science camp took place in London

The representative office of Rossotrudnichestvo in London hosted a scientific camp, which was traditionally organised by the London School of Mathematics and Programming. Meteorological technology became the theme of the camp.

Elder students learned how to create and manage a meteorological station that registers seismic activity and measures wind flow. One of the station’s features was a mobile solar battery, which requires implementation of the program logic of turning to the best position relative to the sun.

Younger students received basic theoretical knowledge of renewable energy sources, and studied wind turbines as an example. The children learned how turbines operate, discovered interesting facts about wind generators, learned where the highest turbine is located, what components it consists of, and how long a modern wind turbine serves for. To consolidate the theoretical knowledge, the children created a prototype showing how a wind generator works when attached to a house. The unique model of the house was designed specifically for young students, so they could build it without glue and remodelled it if necessary.

The London School of Mathematics and Programming based at the representative office of Rossotrudnichestvo was founded in 2015 by Anastasia Stone, a graduate of the St.Petersburg State University of Mathematics and Mechanics. The school provides classes in mathematics, programming, chess, as well as workshops on interdisciplinary sciences. International competitions in mathematics and robotics are regularly held at the school. London School of Mathematics and Programming currently has five branches and conducts classes in both Russian and English.
