International Exhibition for Young Inventors (IEYI) 201817 October - 20 October 2018
Continuing the realization of social projects, Gorodissky & Partners co-organized and sponsored the Russian team participation in the International Exhibition for Young Inventors (IEYI).
The first International Exhibition for Young Inventors (IEYI) took place in 2004 in Tokyo and became a kind of international continuation of the national exhibition held annually since 1904, and for 14 years, it has been held in different countries of Asia and Africa. This year the exhibition was organized by the Foundation of Glocal Science Initiatives in New Delhi.
It was second participation of Russian team in this exhibition. Last year our team won 1 silver and 5 bronze medals. The results of this year exceeded all expectations - the Russian team won 2 gold, 3 silver and 1 bronze medals, as well as 3 special prizes. Gold winners became Anastasiia Shipiguzova and Anastasiia Posanidi from Perm with the project of the original Safe Drainage Grid under the playful name “Don’t Get Behind the Bars” and Daniil Novik from Ekaterinburg with the project “Resomatrix/Post-Ischemic Patient Activity Restoring Complex.”
Silver medals were won by Dmitrii Antonov, a navy cadet of the Nizhny Novgorod Children's River Shipping Company, with the project “Research Sea Drone “Sea Eye”, Georgii Barashkov and Vladislav Sokolskiy, students of the Lyceum at the Bauman Moscow State Technical University, with the project “Rehabilitation Vibrational Glove”, and Irina Maslennikova from Perm, the author of the project “Portable First Aid Clamp”. Indira Kalimullina, a student from Naberezhnye Chelny with the project “Posture Improving Device” won a bronze. Navy cadets from the Nizhny Novgorod Children's River Shipping Company received special prizes from the participating countries: Artem Gavrilin and Dmitrii Smirnov, authors of the project “High-speed Hydrofoil Solar Ship “Solaris”, Dmitry Tarakanov with the project “Captainless Solar Ship”, and Dmitry Antonov with the project “Research Sea Drone “Sea Eye” received prizes from Singapore, Taiwan and Thailand delegations.
Participants had to compete hard for the awards and prizes - about 200 young inventors from 9 countries took part in the competition for the best invention.
Yury Kuznetsov, a member of the International Jury from Russia, Partner of Gorodissky & Partners, shared his impression: “Our children participate in the International Exhibition only the second time, but they seem like regular participants, although this is not easy. According to the rules of the exhibition, each participant must not only present a workable model or a scale model of his technical solution, but also be able to understand in English and clearly explain to the judges how it was created, what tasks it solves, where it can be used, and also show the solution in the work and respond additional questions of judges. Talking to young inventors, sometimes you forget that they are 15-16 years old, so serious and deep are their knowledge and ideas. All solutions presented at the exhibition should be made by young inventors themselves - this is an indispensable condition, therefore judges see not only young scientists, but also great fixers who can equally well cut with a jigsaw, work on a machine, solder, glue and write program. Many times I witnessed how the young participants professionally operated with various tools from their toolkits, putting the exhibition samples into working condition - their own and their colleagues with whom they actually had to compete. This, by the way, is especially worth noting - although the Exhibition is a competition, but it always reigns an atmosphere of mutual assistance, respect, joy for the success of their associates, like-minded people in the inventive work. We are very proud with the Russian team results and hope that they will inspire other schoolchildren. Next year we plan to support the participation of our team in the International Exhibition for Young Inventors, which will be held in Jakarta (Indonesia).”
The International Exhibition for Young Inventors is an event designed to promote creative development, innovation and unification of young inventors around the world. It gives participants a unique opportunity to present their inventions and share experience with other participants from around the world.
