From ecology to e-Sports: what educational projects are available to Moscow schoolchildren

September 8

The capital is a leader in the process of educating the younger generation. Young Moscow residents get familiarized with different professions and the history of the Fatherland not only in schools and colleges, but in cultural institutions, universities, enterprises, parks and memorial places too.

The projects aimed at patriotic education and preservation of historical memory are being implemented in Moscow. The new academic year will see schoolchildren having an opportunity to become participants of bright projects, in some of them — together with their parents.

Olympiad “Museums. Parks. Manor houses”

September 1 will give start to the next season of the Olympiad “Museums. Parks. Manor houses”.

Study day at the museum and library

Two projects will begin simultaneously in September where classes will be held outside schools — “Study Day in the Museum” (for the pupils of grades 3-11) and “School Day in the Library” (for pupils of grades 5-11 ).
