Manager of programmes at GARAGE TESLA,
Director of Digital Spring Agency, Armenia
Anastasya helps children at GARAGE TESLA to test their start-up ideas, to write scenarios and to organize concerts and other evening events.
The idea of starting GARAGE TESLA appeared a long time ago. Our first festivals related to technologies and applying creative approaches took place back in 2014 at Moscow Telegraph. Those events were very exciting to watch!
Hundreds of children were coming together with their parents to create their own robots or print out 3D models designed by them.
Today we are happy to expand the locations of GARAGE TESLA to multiple cities in Russia and Armenia. Our main goal is to create an environment in which children will get an opportunity to work on their dreams and feel independent and successful. Children from different parts of the world meet at GARAGE TESLA: USA, Europe, Russia, Armenia and other SIC countries.
The main courses at GARAGE TESLA are taught by experts of the digital industry, professional designers, musicians and engineers, and our support team is always here for kids to help them with creating their projects and presenting them. So, step by step, together we increase confidence in their abilities and create an understanding of which career paths attract them the most.
Since I was a kid, I enjoyed the processes of engineering and creating new things. Now, it makes me genuinely happy to see my students bring their ideas to life. My main goal is to share my love for the process of creating new things with them and make this process safe for everybody. For the rest of the process, I am letting my students be creative and free in their ideas without any interventions.
Engineering is one of the ways to understand how our world functions, and this is magic to see how inventive children can be when it comes to engineering. This is a very natural process: Children are not prejudiced, unlike the majority of grown ups, and thus, there are no boundaries for their creativity.
Our GARAGE TESLA team has years of experience in educational and practical work in the IT industry, engineering, and teaching, and we keep gaining new experience every day. One of the greatest parts of gaining experience for us has always been communicating with children, as we always learn a lot from them.
For me, it has always been a pleasure to create new things together with children! For more than 10 years, I have been working with kids, and I am sure that each of them is capable of doing a lot of things.
We take part in hackathons, create open educational spaces, IT-related spaces in the STEM format, workshops, and design studios. Besides that, we organize engineering festivals and educational events, both online and offline.
A hybrid format of communication provides us with a lot more opportunities. We can have meetings online or face-to-face and create individual plans for further personal development for children. We will meet up all together in our co-learning spaces to take part in the most exciting events and competitions remotely. Now, children from all around the world can come together to create! What can be better? Especially in summer, when kids are seeking new emotions, friends, adventures, and happiness! And we want to make their dreams come true.
At GARAGE TESLA, children will not only believe in themselves but also will travel to the future, learn how to create their first start-up, and present it to a big audience. Meeting significant people at GARAGE TESLA will change their lives! No matter how far you live, the most important parts are always what you believe in and what you are willing to achieve in life.

In GARAGE TESLA, we solve concrete problems, create real projects, and try to achieve results with a limited amount of sources available. Everything happens here as in real life!
For the learning process to be of high quality, we have to be passionate about what we are doing. Thus, we always try to make children curious about their projects, and help them make their dreams come true.
