A unique project by a SUSU small innovative enterprise opened in Chelyabinsk. Snezhitsa is a complex where by means of the augmented reality technologies snow can be transformed into the Earth surface with lakes and mountains, volcanoes and valleys, into an ocean full of fish, a treasure trove, or surface of the mysterious Mars.
Snezhitsa provides equipment which allows children to train their memory, attention, thinking abilities and imagination in the form of games. This unique complex was created thanks to joint work of such companies as “Innovations for Children”, “KAE-Group” and “Chudo Ostrov”. Despite the fact that the team of “Innovations for Children” Company is quite young, these people have already managed to create a small innovative enterprise at South Ural State University. Such enterprises facilitate boosting competitiveness and development of innovative infrastructure of the University.
The main goal of this work was technological improvement of the field of preschool education. In this case the task was a very unusual one: over a short period of time to develop a complex capable of functioning in severe Ural winter climate, when temperatures can vary from 40ºC below zero and to 5ºC above zero. Meanwhile, it was very important to keep a standard service life of the used equipment and provide failure-free functioning of this complex. It is not the first work of this kind by the company. Over the period of its existence they have managed to prove themselves at the market of preschool education.
“The project meets all the modern trends in education development. It will be interesting for parents as well since through this project they will be able to trace how their children are developing. We are planning to keep supporting this work in the Chelyabinsk Region system of education,” shares Elena Kouzova, Deputy Minister of Education and Science for the Chelyabinsk Region.
It is also worth noting that this project is quite an original one, and there are no its analogues in the world at present.
Anyone can try to be a magician here, all you need is come to the Ice Park located at the Revolutionary Square and find “Snezhitsa” complex not far from the stage. And then you can start creating, after all, the imagination is the limit. The entertainers would be happy to help all those willing navigate the new complex’s work. Snezhitsa is designed for the youngest guests of the festivities. This project will be at full disposal of the citizens all through the winter.
