The kids saw the satellite antennas and were told what they were all about. They toured the control center for satellite communication systems and found out why there are so many monitors and what they monitor. The children also visited the Museum of History of Science and Technology of the Joint Institute for Nuclear Research (JINR), where they became participants in physical experiments and were familiarized with the purposes of the Synchrophasotron and Nuclotron.
The trip made it possible for the children to learn more about their parents' work, as well as to see the importance of applied science.
