Nuclear Energy Information Center holds networking event

Yekaterinburg’s Information Center for Nuclear Energy recently hosted a networking event for the entire community.

As part of the celebration, approximately 20 teams of local schoolchildren played various games to stimulate their minds and boost intelligence.

A surprise awaited the attendees -- students from the Eurasian Council of senior citizens performed a flash mob dance.

Employees from the information center answered questions and held quizzes. Quiz winners were awarded with souvenir industry prizes.

Students provided hot tea and cake at the Manual University of Economics' gift center.

There were many participants at the event, including representatives of public and educational organizations, as well as leaders from industry partnerships. Teachers, schoolchildren, students and industry veterans enjoyed the celebration.

A report from Ural State Economic University said that along with  the fun activities, this event focused on the center’s 2015 highlights so far.

Elena Nikolaeva, director of the Information Center, emphasized the center’s unique role in the lives of students, parents and teachers. She had a number of statistics to impress the audience: over 40,000 people have visited and participated in information center projects in the past two years, and over 100 events have taken place in the past year.

The program’s innovative projects require communication, meetings, strategies, equipment setup and preparation. Some of the center’s wildest projects have included the astronomy of exoplanets, model paper airplanes and a bike ride with dosimeters.

Information center leaders encouraged the public with sneak peeks at the exciting new projects scheduled for 2015, which may include a joint project on the 70th anniversary of the nuclear industry.
