Success of the project "Engineering contests and competitions" under the road map Marinette STI attracted attention abroad. In St. Petersburg, there was a meeting with the Finnish Association for Energy of the engineering competition "Solar Regatta" in Finland. Colleagues from Finland interested in the experience of the implementation of the educational project and work with pupils and students.
25 February 2020 , the NGO "National Center for Engineering contests and competitions" ("NC IKS") and Savitaipale Solar Energy Association signed a cooperation agreement in the field of promotion of the objectives of sustainable development (CUR) The United Nations and the promotion of renewable energy sources. The main joint activities 2020 year will include international engineering competition "Solar Regatta" in Finland, be held 8 August 2020 in the city of Savitaipale in the scenic Lake Kuolimo area.
In the world an urgent need to protect the water, especially fresh, this is one of the priorities, which occupy an important place among the objectives of sustainable development (CUR) – set goals for the future international cooperation officially known, as "the transformation of our world: agenda for sustainable development for the period up 2030 Year "approved by UN member states in 2015 year. Fresh water - a valuable strategic resource and its conservation, important area for Russian Environmental Policy. Racing boats Solar attract public attention to the development of environmentally friendly water transport, educate future engineers, capable of solving the problem of high-tech from the environmental scope.
Cooperation with foreign partners on the environmental agenda and education is always valuable and rewarding experience. Finland is one of the first places in the world for clean air and water quality and confidence among the leading countries, which consumes the most energy from renewable sources.
With 2014 year, "NC X" annually conducts engineering competition "Solar Regatta" in which, today, attended by more than 28 Russian regions, project is part of a road map Marinette STI. Students and schoolchildren throughout Russia build solar-powered boats and compete on them in speed, agility and endurance of environmentally friendly water transport.
