42 rural schools in Udmurtia will open “Growth points” this September as a part of the national project “Education”, initiated by Russian President Vladimir Putin. Each educational institution will be equipped with a chess room. It was announced on the personal page of the social network “Vkontakte” by the head of the region Alexander Brechalov.

Renovation work in schools is almost done. Educational institutions are preparing to receive new modern equipment. The “Growing points” centers will have computers, video cameras, 3D printers, training simulators, and quadcopters. Also, each school will have a chess room.

This is a gift to both all students and young chess players, of whom there are already more than 20 thousand in the republic!
