“Hands-on” practicum on nuclear physics for high-school students from Israel
17 high-school students accompanied by teachers from the HEMDA, the Centre for Science Education, Tel Aviv, Israel, took part in 1-day extensive “hands-on” practicum on nuclear physics. On April 11, 2018, the VLab team headed by professor Yu.A. Panebrattsev has organized the extensive “hands-on” practicum program for the group of high-school students from Tel Aviv. Under the supervision of VLab team students got acquainted with basics of electrical signals measurement, learned about operation of semiconductor, scintillation and time-of-flight detectors, studied the vacuum system for nuclear experiment, assembled and worked with a scintillation telescope of cosmic rays. Our supervisors of this practicum were very glad to work with such the gifted students from Israel. And we welcome new students for such the challenge!

Student practice at JINR, Stage 3
The International Student Practice in JINR Fields of Research is a three-week programme aimed at attracting talented young people to the Institute and building awareness of the possibilities of studying and conducting scientific research at JINR. In September 2017 the practice for students from South Africa and Belorussia was held on the base of the Software-Hardware complex “Virtual Laboratory of Nuclear Fission”. Within this practice students had a set of lectures, worked with virtual and real physical equipment. They made their student research works under the supervision of VLab Team specialists.
VLab Workshop in Stellenbosch University, South Africa
In July 2017 VLab Team organized the VLab workshop in Stellenbosch University (South Africa). Within this workshop VLab development perspectives and possibilities of VLab implementation into educational process of SAR universities were analyzed. We discussed last results of the project, its current state and future plans.
