At Noosphere, we strive to apply the concept of STEM education and create favorable conditions for enhancing the engineering ecosystem in Ukraine.
This year, due to the quarantine situation in Ukraine and Dnipro city, we had to postpone many of our events. The BestRoboFest robotics festival for young techies was one of them. However, Noosphere decided to provide new opportunities for young technology enthusiasts in Dnipro by introducing another first to robotics competitions in Ukraine.
On October 31, 1920, Vladimir Vernadsky, gave a lecture “Science as a geological force”. The lecture and ideas presented that day set into motion the development of noosphere theory.
The Vernadsky Challenge is a unique engineering startup competition, organized by Noosphere since 2015. This year, Noosphere continued the same competition format from the year before – with a focus on active bioelectronics and space technology projects.
On October 3-4, the largest space hackathon NASA Space Apps Challenge was held in 150 countries around the world. This is the fourth consecutive time Noosphere has been Dnipro’s local host for the hackathon.
From September 25-27, Dnipro Kamyanka aerofield welcomed 44 space modelers from 8 Ukrainian regions to participate in the Ukrainian Space Models 2020 Championship.
