School 2030 is a unique, web-based, educational platform that enables students, teachers, and learners of all ages to pose questions and together find answers. With School 2030, teachers finally have in one place all the resources, tools, partners, and support to bring authentic investigations to classrooms and homes. In School 2030 is akin to San Francisco Exploratorium or the Explore-At-Bristol Science Discovery Centre in Bristol, England, where children explore complex ideas by playing with hands-on exhibits. Its design was facilitated by the Moscow Institute of Open Education in collaboration with ILAET.
With 20,000 square meters for 1,100 K-12 students, it is Europe’s most spacious school. And it is the most advanced.

In addition to data loggers in science classrooms, all students have wireless laptop computers that they take home. The devices are loaded with learning software ranging from text editors to interactive dynamic molecular simulations.
At School 2030, educators make sure that students explore the world around them not just with computers but with their hands as well.
