Possible place of the future infant tech park allocation may be one of the industrial tech parks of the Voronezh region. The total area of “Quantorium” infant tech park will be not less than 1000 square meters.
Planned training tracks are advanced vehicles, programming and information security, mechatronics and applied programming, small drone aircraft, microbiology and biotechnologies. On the basis of the “Quantorium” the placement of medialibrary, lecture hall and coworking-center is also contemplated. The planned number of pupils is 800 children per year.
The setting-up of infant tech parks (“Quantoriums”) is the key element for the implementation of the strategic project “New model of children supplementary educational system”, offered by the Agency of Strategic Initiatives.
The main objective of the project is formation of a multistaged system of out-of-school work with children, focused on detection and development of every child’s talents.
The main training directions are neurotechnologies and neurobiology (neuroquantum), microbiology and biotechnologies (bioquantum), applied astronautics (astroquantum), advanced vehicles (autoquantum), small drone aircraft (airquantum), small innovative shipbuilding (energyquantum), mechatronics and applied programming (roboquantum), geoinformatics (geoquantum), programming and information security (IT-quantum).
The pilot-regions for the programm were the Tatarstan Republic, the Altai region, the Moscow region and the Khanty-Mansi Autonomous Area (Yugra).
