Ten students and young scientists from six Russian regions won the Ticket to the Arctic contest. Over 300,000 people took part in it. The winners presented projects on ecology, safety, and construction. In October, they will go on a scientific expedition to the Arctic region (Murmansk Region), the press service of the ANO Clean Arctic told TASS.
I hope that a trip to the Arctic expedition will be a good incentive for the winners to continue their scientific career, said Deputy Minister of Science and Higher Education Denis Sekirinsky.
Among the projects proposed by the winners are the creation of drones that will be equipped with cameras and sensors to monitor the environmental situation in the region; the development of hydrographic charts to eliminate "white spots" using the latest sonars for the safety of navigation; the development of unique architectural projects for the renovation of polar stations; a northern fashion show of collections made from Arctic waste, and much more.
The competition is held by ANO Clean Arctic within the framework of the Popularization of Science and Technology federal project of the Ministry of Science and Higher Education of the Russian Federation.
Participants of the scientific expedition will visit natural reserves, operating production sites, key research centers and scientific and technological enterprises of the partners.
