Abstract. The article investigates the role of regional school technoparks in implementing the national project “Education». The development of scientific and technical competencies of school students is positioned as an adequate response of Russian society to the challenges of technogenic civilization. The aim of this research is to analyze positive effects of school technoparks activity. The substantive basis of the article is the analysis of scientific sources on this topic and the results of a specific sociological study by questionnaire survey among parents of visitors to the Regional school technopark of the Astrakhan region. The authors note the important role of school technology parks in the implementation of objectives in the The National Project “Education” “Technology” subject area, ensuring national security, improving the innovation environment, the education system, the development of human capital, talent and the formation of a new intellectual elite. The results of the survey showed that a significant part of the technopark’s programmes is financed from the budget. The social and demographic characteristics of a child visitor to a technopark in Astrakhan region have been identified. Among them, predominant boys with good grades in the basic secondary school and whose parents are marrie . It is noteworthy that in the traditionally multi-ethnic region with three titular nations, the programs of the technopark are mainly attended by Russians. This reflects the growing social distance between national groups in parenting and education strategies. The authors pay attention to the high motivation of parents in the intellectual development of the child, his scientific and technical abilities and competencies. It is also noted that a significant share of parents are planning to educate their child after graduation from school outside the region, which indicates the trend of outflow  future scientific and technical elite from the region.

Keywords: regional school technopark, national program “Education”, additional education for schoolchildren, engineering and technical creativity, gifted children.
