LET’S BUILD THE FUTURE
OF SCHOOL TOGETHER.

4.0 schools is a community of curious people
turning bold ideas into solutions for students,
parents and educators.

 

Share your half-hunches.

Every month, we bring together educators, engineers, designers and entrepreneurs to discuss the future of school in an engaging social environment. At 4.0, we believe that the best ideas are developed in community, not in isolation.
