The core part of the pre-accelerator program involves providing training to school teachers and providing them with the relevant set of teaching materials to help them implement the program at their schools going forward. Over a period of several months, the teachers that had received the training were involved in the supervision of the school students developing their tech projects.


In 2023, 20 teachers from Pyt-Yakh and Noyabrsk received training following a program developed by the regional Future Tech Leaders pre-accelerator. Following the training program’s completion, 2 of the regional pre-accelerator’s programs were incorporated in the curricular activities of 6 educational institutions.

On December 21 and 22, 2023, two educational institutions - Noyabrsk’s School No. 5 and School No. 1 in Pyt-Yakh – became the venues for holding the program’s final events: experts review sessions featuring presentations of projects by school students.

The students presented the results of their work to a jury of experts that consisted of officials representing local administrations and Departments of Education of the cities of Noyabrsk and Pyt-Yakh, as well as experts from SIBUR and the Social Investment Fund. Each of the projects was assessed based on the following merits: thoroughness of competition analysis, target audiences surveyed, the quality of the project's presentation to the public, and others.

4 teams representing the two cities emerged as the winners of the regional pre-accelerator program: "From an Idea to a Model" (the Yuventa Center, Noyabrsk; supervising teacher - Oksana Serebryakova); "The Chicks" (School No. 5, Noyabrsk, supervising teacher - Elena Golovko); "DrumWall" and "SchoolHelper" (School № 5, Pyt-Yakh, Marina Komova).

In all, 126 school students took part in the program’s activities, of whom 45 went on to defend the projects they had created as part of the pre-accelerator program.
