The Club of Future Scientists is a scientific and educational project aimed at curious children aged 8-15 years.
Our motto is: easy, accessible and interesting for children about science.
The club’s activities include regular meetings of club members and mentors.

The program of meetings: popular science lectures, experiments, master classes
The Club of intellectual and board games.
The club actively works with adults and children, holds regular events in the museum lecture hall and open-air quests.
So, tournaments are held for children and adults on what? Where? When ?, brain ring and quiz, including thematic (Cosmos, Ecology, Zoology, Chemical Elements, Dark Matter Day, JINR: what do we know about him ?, Museum secrets, etc.)
For parents with children, historical and cultural quests on the Institute Dubna are annually held. This is a great training for observation and quick wits! Since far from all quest objects are marked in guidebooks, their search sometimes resembles the intellectual game Crossword with Fragments in the journal Science and Life of the 1970s.
The club also holds tournaments and game libraries for board games (Rummikub, set, etc.)
The Club of Mathematics Lovers appeared in the museum, laying a new tradition of developing mathematical games for students in grades 1-8. The club works together with the Physics and Mathematics Faculty of JINR.
These games are a little like the usual school olympiads with once and for all approved rules.
For here the rules change from game to game, by analogy with the names of events - such as Mathematical carousel, Mathematical domino, Mathematical abacus, Mathematical auction, Mathematical biathlon. The rules change - the requirements of speed and accuracy remain unchanged. Usually 3-5 children’s teams participate in the game.
Each time, the team is offered a selection of arithmetic, geometric, as well as logical problems. The difficulty level corresponds to the age of the participants.
The Club of Astronomy Lovers consists of people from Dubna who are sincerely passionate about this branch of knowledge. Almost all of them have extensive experience working with high-precision optics, regularly travel to the visible areas of solar eclipses and then share the results in a museum lecture hall.
Sometimes the observation of celestial bodies is carried out right on the site in front of the museum.
