The container is printed on a 3D printer, a special liquid is placed inside it, which is previously cooled in the freezer. As a result, the necessary temperature, from +2°С to +8°С, is kept inside the container for 8 hours. Arseny developed the project with his supervisor, primary school teacher Natalya Sherstneva.

When Arseny’s family went on a vacation with friends, the boy noticed how difficult it is for his friend Yura to keep medicine at a certain temperature in the southern countries. Arseny’s invention allows preserving the medicine for a long time — longer than the devices on the market can do.
