Nurturing Younger Generations

Nurturing a new generation is our common goal, so Knowledge Day is a holiday not only for school children, students, and teachers, but for all of us, including manufacturers of stationery, school uniforms, educational gadgets, and other learning products.

NexTouch, a Moscow-based company, produces interactive complexes with the capability of writing with dust-free chalk and markers, also on a touch screen. Over 10 thousand classrooms across the country are already equipped with such systems. The demand for this kind of products will only grow because interactive technologies help engaging children in the learning process.

It is hard to imagine school chemistry, physics or biology classrooms without special equipment. The company Scientific Entertainment creates sets for laboratory work and preparation for exams, as well as educational development kits. Particularly popular are its legendary Young Physicist and Young Chemist kits. In 2021, the educational equipment of Scientific Entertainment was supplied to 30,000 schools in Russia, Kazakhstan, Azerbaijan, Uzbekistan, as well as to educational institutions in Japan and France.

But what would schooling be without notebooks, sketchbooks, and student planners? The Moscow enterprise BG is one of the largest manufacturers of paper and stationery for school, office, and creative work in our country: up to 90 million items are produced here every year.

And the enterprise Das Werk, located in the Kalibr technology park, produces children's 3D printers Meteor. They are different from conventional ones – smaller in size and easier to use. These printers can be used to print both simple school stationery (rulers, pencil cases) as well as more complex objects, for example, as part of research projects.


In Russia the school year did not always begin on September 1. For example, in the times of Peter the Great pupils returned to their desks at the end of August or in mid-October, while rural schools were opened on December 1. Even in the USSR, until the mid-1930s, there was no unified date to start school. And the idea of celebrating September 1 was initially proposed by the Comintern's youth representatives: they suggested commemorating the annual International Youth Day with anti-war actions and Peace lessons at schools. Thus, September 1 was introduced as the start of classes in all schools of the USSR by the Resolution of the Council of People's Commissars and the Central Committee of the All-Union Communist Party of Bolsheviks in 1935. And only in 1984 it became known to us as a now familiar Knowledge Day.


The system of vocational technical training in our country was established on October 2, 1940, when a decree of the Presidium of the Supreme Soviet of the USSR defined three types of colleges: vocational schools, railway colleges and factory schools. They were created in the shortest possible time.

Today there are 50 colleges in Moscow, and the popularity of vocational education is growing. In 2021, the IT fields became the most popular among Moscow applicants, and this trend echoes the gradual digitalization of the industry: enterprises are actively introducing high-tech solutions to make the hard work easier, speed up manufacturing processes, improve communication in production, etc.
