Participants of the specialized shift of FSUE "Rosmorport" present their inventions at the Festival of Projects in the "Artek" ICC

On May 29, the children's camp "Rechnoy" hosted the Festival of projects, where the participants of the specialized shift of FSUE "Rosmorport" "To the dream under the sail" demonstrated the skills acquired within the program.

At the improvised stations, the students presented models that they had designed during the courses "Innovative Shipbuilding", "Entertaining Navigation", "Young Meteorologist", "Depth sounder", "Data transmission using Morse code".

Each participant of the festival could come to any station point, learn about the devices, as well as participate in a master class and see how a particular unit functions.

During the shift, young navigators created navigation devices, models of echo sounders, boats, and much more. Thanks to the specialized education modules, the participants learned how to understand drawings and work in the Arduino software development environment.

For example, the team of the course dedicated to Morse code, created the devices necessary for sailors to transmit signals over long distances, including conditions of strong radio interference. The invented devices are able to convert ordinary text into Morse code signals. The children taught the visitors of the station elementary signals and methods of data transmission. At the "Entertaining Navigation" point, everyone could test an astrolabe, a homemade compass and see the binoculars created by the students who completed the course.

The culmination of the festival was the testing and launch of five models of radio-controlled vessels built by the participants of the course "Innovative Shipbuilding" in the port of the flotilla of the Artek International Child Center. The developers of the models told the audience that the inventions consist of a motor, a control center based on the Arduino program, a power supply, and a bluetooth wire, thanks to which the ship can move. Some of the details were printed by the young inventors on a 3D printer.
