The new season of the educational and tourist project for children starts in Moscow

The official website of the Mayor of Moscow announced the start of a new season of the educational and tourist project "Along the path of great Discoveries". You can apply for participation until April 15th. Students between the ages of 10 and 18, as well as teachers from the capital's schools and colleges, can join the project. 

Participants will be able to choose one of three directions. Those who prefer the "Path of the Researcher" will study the history and culture of Russia, its natural objects and phenomena. Those who want to dedicate an expedition to environmental protection or socially significant projects will take the "Volunteer Path". The Path of the Discoverer track will allow students to develop new tourist routes related to the biography of one of their great travelers.

Not only tourists and researchers can realize themselves in the program, but also children who are passionate about history and volunteering. The project allows them to get to know nature, improve their social skills and join a healthy lifestyle.

At the first stage of the project, children under the guidance of teachers will be trained at the Moscow Children's and Youth Center for Ecology, Local Lore and Tourism. Someone will develop the concept of travel, others will have to demonstrate physical fitness and pass the standards of the TRP complex.  

Then the participants will follow the route they have developed and conduct various research on the hike. Travel diaries, materials filmed on the way and the results of the work will be reviewed by an expert commission. At the final stage, the children will defend their projects. The best works will be able to become the basis for the creation of new tourist routes.
