22 teachers from Belarus, India, Russia and Ukraine with their best 9 and 10 grade students came to JINR for participation in the School. The programme of the School includes popular-science lectures by leading JINR specialists, excursions to experimental facilities and JINR laboratories. A special programme is prepared for school students: training on physics as well as a scientific seminar at which students will present their reports on one of the branches of physics will be held. Reports will be made in the format of synopsis, the story about the original study, performance of the experiment, its explanations etc. Every high school student invited to participate in the School is supposed to make a report at the scientific seminar.
