The article considers ways of using Smart-education for additional education upgrading of children and young people. It presents the results of a data analysis based on a sample survey of children and young people, their parents, teachers and administration of additional education institutions in the Tyumen region. The survey regarded issues of preference and satisfaction with the quality of scientific and technical additional education. The results show that the majority of respondents find applied sport and technical facilities more attractive. In order to promote and develop additional sci-tech education, it is suggested to upgrade it with the help of computer technologies (ICT). Using smart-education technologies on the principles of integration and openness of educational resources can help to build a system of open continuous education in the natural sciences, engineering and technology. The article describes a pilot educational programme of additional education in net technologies implemented with the help of smart-education technologies at the Institute of Mathematics and Computer Sciences of the Tyumen State University.
