The NTI Olympiad – is a competition for schoolchildren of 7–11 classes aimed at identifying and developing  of talented children who are capable to solve complex cross-disciplinary tasks. Tomsk Polytechnic University is the developer of the "Smart City" profile, so the final of the Olympiad on it is held in Tomsk.

"This year we have 35 people from 10 regions, including the Central region, Bashkiria, St. Petersburg, Vladivostok. We have one participant who traveled for three days from Khabarovsk Krai - by bus, on foot, by train and in the end he reached us", – Kanashuk said.

As the press service of the university specifies, schoolchildren from Bashkortostan, Chuvashia, Dagestan, Khabarovsk and Primorsky krais, Omsk, Tomsk, Orenburg, Novosibirsk regions and St. Petersburg participate in the final stage of the "Smart City" profile.

According to TPU, in 2019, schoolchildren could choose one of 19 Olympiad profiles related to the development of "markets of the future": unmanned vehicles, intellectual energy, small cosmonautics, neuro- and biotechnologies, robotics, and other scientific fields. The directions correspond to the industry priorities of the NTI – the program of Russia's global technological leadership by 2035.

The task – is to create your "smart" city

"Previously, as you remember, it was enough to work with fifth-year students, fourth-year students .., to attract to practice. Then we began to work with beginners – first, second, third courses. Now we see that this age is becoming less and less, and we have already come to schoolchildren", – Kanashuk noted.

These tasks were developed with the participation of the partner profile - Research and Development enterprise "Tomsk Electronic Company".
