ORT students are ahead of the technological progress again!

20  2017

Many of us enjoy watching on the progress and latest achievements in technology and science from the outside, appreciating the concrete products rather than the process itself. However, the students from ORT Educational Complex 141 are not the same. They just are those who prefer to pass all the way from the idea to the final resultby themselves. And the result of their work was the 3D printer that has been presented today at the Kiev Polytechnic Institute named after Igor Sikorsky.

During the academic year Elena Krasnova, Artem Dihtiar, Philip Zhuk, Vladislav Atamanchuk, and Artem Pinchuk worked to create 3D-printer under the guidance of leading specialists of the Department of Integrated Engineering Technologies of Kiev Polytechnic Institute named after Igor Sikorsky – Vitaliy Pasichnyk, Head of Department, PhD, Professor; Dmitriy Julia, Assistant, Candidate of Technical Sciences.

Students realized the entire production process from design to production, created three-dimensional models of components of 3D-printer, developed the design by themselves, wrote software for printer,  conducted calibration. Equipment necessary for the construction of the printer was purchased thanks to the sponsorship assistance.

Created 3D-printer was named "KORT-1"; it can simultaneously print complex models with two types of plastic. The cost of the printer is about 17,500 USD. The cost of such printers on the Ukrainian market starts from 30 thousand dollars.

"These students are fantastic, they are almost professionals and may even begin to work professionally, -says Lyudmila Finkelstein, the executive director of the Charitable Organization “Educational Resources and Technological Training "(ORT). – With the help of professional teachers, these children turned “from glass into diamonds”. ORT is happy to have such schools in the ORT’s network!"

Namely due to ORT’s educational system, where an unique course «3D modeling" is studied from the 10th grade, students get the knowledge and skills required in their future life for mastering ofengineering profession. ORT Educational Complex 141, which is a part of ORT’s network since its opening, works on the experimental curriculum; all the programs on information technology have been developed by ORT teachers and experts and approved by the Ministry of Education and Science of Ukraine.

We hope, the work on this project will bring our young inventors many successes and discoveries!
