For School Students

NICA – Universe in the Lab. Video lectures

The Joint Institute for Nuclear Research (JINR) prepared materials for holding events for schoolchildren on the theme "NICA - The Universe in the Laboratory" by the Day of Russian Science. In this video academician Grigory Trubnikov will talk about the research that scientists from different countries of the world will be carrying out at the NICA accelerator complex.

Materials are intended for schoolchildren of 8-11 grades. They are a video film consisting of 7 parts. The total duration is about 35 minutes. The duration of individual parts is from 5 to 7 minutes. Materials can be used as a whole, or as separate parts in the study of various sections of physics and astronomy.

Main Facilities

Multimedia exposition which reveals working principles of some of JINR Main Facilities. Exposition is used for public demonstration.


NICA Complex

Video hightlights of the accelerator complex at the Laboratory of High Energy Physics. It shows finished parts of the project (sources, linear accelerators, a factory of magnets, etc.) and with the developed ones (collider ring, MPD detector, etc.).


Superheavy elements at U-400 Cyclotron

Video tells about the synthesis of new superheavy elements on the U-400 Cyclotron of the Laboratory of Nuclear Reactions.


Baikal Neutrino Telescope

Baikal Neutrino telescope

Video tells about the Russian Neutrino Telescope of the Laboratory of Nuclear Problems located at the bottom of Lake Baikal. Neutrinos, flying through the Earth, are detected by numerous detectors, immersed in the bottom of the lake.


Proton therapy

Proton therapy at Medico-Technical Complex

Video tells about the principles of the installation of a Medico-Technical Complex located on the basis of the Phasotron of the Laboratory of Nuclear Problems.


IBR reactor
