The Kruzhok Association was established in the summer of 2017. It is aimed at supporting and developing Russian technology kruzhoks and other organizations of extracurricular education in the field of technology, working in the logic of the National Technology Initiative and the Scientific and Technological Development Strategy of the Russian Federation approved by decree of the President of the Russian Federation No. 642 of 1 December 2016.
The founders of the Association have been implementing various projects in the field of new education for many years. In our activities we realized that serious measures have already been taken in this area: networks of platforms for child&adult projects, Centers for Youth Innovation Creativity, “Kvantorium” children's technoparks, STEM centers have all been created). Moreover, national competitions have been developing and unique pedagogical practices appeared. However, the nods of these efforts are unevenly distributed across the country and have very little connection to each other. This leads to a number of typical problems:
In our opinion, the system lacked a critical element, i.e. a sustainable network, a public organization that should become a circulatory system uniting many enthusiasts and serious players. It should also bring together existing and new projects that are connecting education, science and tech business and providing navigation for children and their projects. Such a network will not only result in a higher quality of education to meet the demand for new professionals, but it will also create a demand for talents and search for niches where they can express themselves and their talents.
The Association aims to unite people from a wide variety of areas who are not indifferent to education: school and university teachers, leaders from institutions of development, representatives of commercial kruzhoks, staff of children's centers. It is important for us that association is the most democratic form of organized entities currently available in Russia. We want it to become the voice of our community in Russia and around the world.
Our objective: to develop the next generation of Russian entrepreneurs, engineers, scientists and managers. The core of this generation will be graduates of kruzhoks - enthusiasts and high level professionals able to conceive, implement and successfully complete projects, create new organizational solutions and tech companies.
The Association aims to unite activists that are highly committed to processes and that truly trust each other. The Association wants to support their regular work and assist in finding financial support for the development of child & adult projects. We hope to create a system through bringing large projects into life.
