The booth of the London School of Mathematics and Programming combined a research laboratory and a workshop space.

Among the presented projects, the most interesting for visitors became the layout of a mars rover, as well as the "smart" house and the "smart" greenhouse. A video sequence from scientific sites from various cities of Russia, which are using innovative Russian developments, was being broadcasted at the stand.

The London School of Mathematics and Programming based at the representative office of Rossotrudnichestvo in the UK was founded in 2015 by Anastasia Stone, a graduate of the Faculty of Mathematics and Mechanics of St. Petersburg State University. The school offers classes in mathematics, programming, robotics, chess, as well as workshops on interdisciplinary sciences. International math and robotic competitions are regularly held at the school. The London School of Mathematics and Programming currently has four branches and teaches classes in Russian and English.
