SCENARIO OF THE DAY OF SCIENCE “COURSE TO MARS!”
The complex of lessons “Course to Mars!” within the Day of Science is devoted to the investigation of the problem specific for mankind — the possibility of a manned flight to Mars. Working on the project for one day at the lessons of astronomy and biology, physics and mathematics, informatics, social studies and the Russian language, students conduct analysis, construct models, view the problem from the point of view of different sciences — technical, natural, humanitarian. The result of the work is defense of the project and testing of the constructed models of rovers.
Keywords: science, interdisciplinary integration, astronautics, Mars.

AN ACTOR FOR LEARNING THE BASICS OF PARALLEL COMPUTATIONS WITHIN INFORMATICS COURSE
Various actors are actively being used in teaching of a school informatics course. In the present article the improvement for one of them — Doubler, is offered so that it suits well for becoming familiar with the basics of parallel computations. The instruction set for the new actor is developed; the software, simulating its work, is realized; the tasks for practical training are selected, solved and described. The proposed teaching method allows to demonstrate to pupils in a popular form the main ideas of parallelism, applied in up to date computing machinery.
Keywords: actor, Doubler, teaching, informatics, parallel computations.

THE TASKS FOR THE ROBOTICS COMPETITION “MINI OLYMPIC GAMES OF ROBOTS”
The article presents some tasks to be done by a participant while taking part in the robotics competition “Mini Olympic Games of robots”. The tasks can be successfully used to teach robotics to students who may have different levels of training. The tasks are in two categories of complexity: “Beginner” and “Amateur”. The tasks were successfully tested while the open regional robotics competition “Mini Olympic Games of robots” that was held in 2017 in Shadrinsk State Pedagogical University.
Keywords: robotics, robotics competition, tasks.
