As Konstantin Tsiolkovsky, a brilliant scientist, humble teacher and great dreamer from Kaluga, said: “There is nothing more powerful than human mind.” Yet there is something bigger – the Universal Mind from Nikola-Lenivets Art Park. The symbiosis of breakthrough ideas of the founder of cosmonautics and the unique art object became the basis of Kaluga Region’s stand.
Ideas are not enough to generate – they need to be supported, as Tsiolkovsky bequeathed. That is why the stand displays the best creations of Kaluga’s brains – Mercator digital services, FarmAid innovative pharmaceuticals, Elmat design solutions and high-tech products from other companies
Importantly, in the Year of the Educator and Mentor, the concept of the stand captures the inextricable link between best mentoring practices and the limitless possibilities of intellect.
