During 2020, about 40 thousand schoolchildren joined the online programs of the capital's children's technoparks. This was reported on the official website of the mayor of Moscow.
“In the spring of 2020, children's technology parks in the capital began to translate educational programs online. Good technical equipment, well-developed urban communication infrastructure and active use of various digital services by Muscovites helped them quickly restructure the educational process and adapt lessons for a remote format,”the statement says.
It is noted that there are a total of 18 children's technoparks in the capital, which are supervised by the Department of Entrepreneurship and Innovative Development.
“For many, it is easier and more convenient to participate in classes remotely. This option allowed children's technology parks to expand their audience and make courses extraterritorial. Some venues noted an increase in listeners not only from Moscow and the regions, but also from other countries - Kazakhstan, Israel and even the United States and South Korea. In total, over the past year, about 40 thousand schoolchildren have joined online programs,”the words of the Deputy Mayor of Moscow Natalya Sergunina are quoted in the material.
As specified, since the opening of the first children's technopark in Moscow in 2016, more than 280 thousand listeners have become participants in educational and interactive projects.
