Program objective

Make space-related research and development more popular among wider audiences of youth and high school students in Russia.

Enable students to take part in child-adult space missions.


To achieve this goal, the Foundation for Assistance to Small Innovative Enterprises, Talent and Success foundation, Skolkovo Institute of Science and Technology and Roscosmos State Corporation have joined forces to create an accessible modern cognitive and educational environment in space-related research and development.


We invite Russian high school students and their mentors to participate in national contests "Baby seals-2019," "Space data," "My school satellite," and others.

Applied space systems 2019-2020

Focal theme: Space optics

The "Applied space systems" contest is an engineering challenge about what makes space useful for people: space photography, communications, navigation, research, etc

Individually selected participants gather in teams and work on educational projects for spacecraft payloads

Participants in 2019-2020 will develop a project for the optical system of the spacecraft and implement the current model of an automatic telescope, including orientation and auto-positioning mechanisms, as part of the theme "space optics". Expert support for the competition is provided by the Lepton Research and production Association and the Samara National Research University. S. P. Koroleva
