  • Nanotech From Birth: How Future Engineers Are Made at ITMO’s “Quantoriums”.

    Some of ITMO University’s staff has become a federal tutor in a childrens’ extracurricular education program organized by the Agency for Strategic Initiatives. The university and the agency have paired up to create the ITMO Nanoquantum program. The university will train tutors who will teach at “Quantoriums” – children’s technoparks that will soon open all over the country.
