Schoolchildren from Kamchatka at JINR

In the last days of November 2022, 12 schoolchildren from the Kamchatka Territory, winners of the Vitus Bering - 2022 Complex Regional Olympiad in natural sciences, visited the Joint Institute for Nuclear Research. During the three days spent in Dubna, the students visited the JINR laboratories, got acquainted with the ongoing scientific projects, took part in a master class on programming, and listened to a number of lectures by JINR specialists.

The visit took place as part of the work of the JINR Infocentre opened in May 2022 on the basis of the Kamchatka State University named after Vitus Bering in Petropavlovsk-Kamchatsky. The opening of the IC at KamSU enhanced the career guidance activity in Kamchatka and made it possible to introduce schoolchildren to the advanced achievements of JINR.

The Complex Regional Olympiad "Vitus Bering - 2022" in natural sciences (physics, chemistry, biology, computer science, mathematics) was organised by KamSU together with Kamchatka Institute for the Development of Education, MIPT, and JINR. Based on the results of two stages, 12 winners were selected among students in grades 8-10. With the support of JINR, the Department of Education of Petropavlovsk-Kamchatsky, and the JINR Infocentre at the Vitus Bering KamSU, the winners of the Olympiad were sent to Dubna.
