Ural high school students present IT projects

High school students in the Urals who worked all year on their own IT projects under the guidance of professors from Ural Federal University and the leading developers of SKB circuit presented their results this summer.

The presentations marked the first the students have collaborated on programming projects adjusted for the learning process.

Four groups of students worked with mentors for one year on the project, which included the optimization of traffic lights at different times of the day, depending on the density of the flow and speed of the vehicles.

The groups also worked on creating a search for users of social networks based on matching interests, preferences and attitudes. They also created a robot for competition in artificial intelligence and managed a quadrocopter with the possibility of image recognition.
