NAU-RA science

Determination and diligence are often named as key requirements for scientific studies. Scientific entertainment company (NAU-RA) operating from the Technopolis Moscow Special Economic Zone can rebut this argument. Scientific entertainment shows that it is a true interest and motivation that matter.
NAU-RA produces educational equipment for natural science and engineering courses: robotics, digital and multimedia laboratories, interactive exhibits and learning kits for school and home. These products make it possible to grow up kids in a natural science oriented learning environment until they enter universities: firstly, to spark their interest by scientific games, then to develop necessary habits of mind and to assist them in organizing their knowledge. And later, it will help children to choose their specialization and future profession which will be in demand on the market for the years.
DIGITAL SOLUTIONS FROM NAU-RA CAN BE FOUND IN PHYSICAL AND CHEMICAL LABS OF LEADING RUSSIAN UNIVERSITIES, SUCH AS MOSCOW ENGINEERING PHYSICS INSTITUTE, MOSCOW INSTITUTE OF PHYSICS AND TECHNOLOGY, LOMONOSOV MOSCOW STATE UNIVERSITY, SAINT PETERSBURG ELECTROTECHNICAL UNIVERSITY AND OTHERS.
Scientific Entertainment Company offers construction sets for teenagers and senior school students. These sets help students to get familiar with the Internet of Things, to make electric circuits, and create algorithms of automatic control over different devices. Workshops and digital laboratories for practical work in math, physics, chemistry, biology, ecology and other fields are designed for students with basic and advanced level of knowledge, and are suitable for the Unified State Exam and the Basic State Exam preparation.

The first educational kit introduced by the NAU-RA team was "Junior Chemist" which covers all the basic areas of a school chemistry course. It is still one of the most popular sets among pupils and their parents. The set has 25 reagents, equipment and a guide book with description of experiments. It allows students to carry out experiments with water, metals, acids and food products.
NAU-RA EQUIPMENT IS DISTRIBUTED TO
30000
SCHOOLS IN RUSSIA, KAZAKHSTAN, AZERBAIJAN, UZBEKISTAN. IT IS ALSO EXPORTED TO FRANCE AND JAPAN
A digital laboratory called "NauRussia in the country of Naurandia" is available for pre-schoolers and elementary school kids. NauRussia is an interactive animated character, a curious boy-scientist, who introduces the most complicated subjects by illustrative experiments. Bright sensors designed as ladybugs are connected to the computer. By using them a kid explores the world around him/her and gets familiar with the essence of temperature and electricity, checks acidity in a favorite juice, does experiments with magnetic fields and so on. It is a one-of-a-kind technology; nothing similar exists anywhere in the world. That is why NauRussia exports this type of labs. Last autumn the Scientific Entertainment Company was contracted to provide sensor systems and drone assembly kits to Japan. These are not just build-and-operate drones, they are suitable for research projects - kids learn physical and aerodynamics laws in the process of programming drones and planning their flying paths.
THE SCIENTIFIC ENTERTAINMENT COMPANY HAS BEEN GRANTED
35
PATENTS FOR INVENTIONS
NAU-RA's latest innovation is an electronic educational complex «Professor Drozdov school», which is designed for 5-11 year old children. It is the first online product of the company. This project includes 23 subject areas to explore and find out curious facts about animals, space, volcanoes, minerals, inventions... The "hero" of the educational program is Nikolay Nikolaievich Drozdov who introduces scientific facts to children. NAU-RA is planning to triple the amount of available information on the online platform so that older children aged 12-13 could join the School.
Oleg Povalyaev,
the CEO of the Scientific Entertainment Company:
"Robotics and sensor kits are replacing traditional natural science home sets. Despite declining purchasing power among our customers (we sold 18 000 kits in 2018 and 14 000 in 2019), we see the share of robotics and sensor kits on the market is steadily growing. Now, market demand is being defined by the educational content of these scientific kits to a greater extent than before. We expect a rise in retail orders in our online shop by the beginning of July."
