Les élèves poursuivent la collecte des mesures et se familiarisent avec le dosimètre proposé, soucieux d'obtenir de "bonnes mesures". Nous espérons collecter le plus rapidement possible les 303 mesures souhaitées et pouvoir ainsi les exploiter afin de répondre à la problématique énoncée dans le cadre du concours CGénial.
Aujourd'hui, nous sommes le 6 Novembre 2019 ... Nous ouvrons ce blog afin de décrire notre mission au sein du lycée Louis de Broglie ...
Dès la semaine prochaine, nous présentons la mission à 101 élèves issus de trois classes de première ... Antoine et Paulina seront nos référents dans les classes de 1E et 1ère spécialité car ils ont travaillé l'année dernière sur une mission Openradiation ... Tous les élèves vont télécharger l'application et chaque élève devra réaliser ... Lire la suite
During this summer period, we analyze the measurements collected by the pupils. As it was said early, three hotspots were identified. Apart from these three hotspots, the measurements show that the dose rate in Kamarin is very similar to dose rates measured elsewhere in the word. For instance, the dose rate in my home, close to Paris, is about 0,06 µSv.h-1 and the outdoor dose rate is about 0.08 µSv.h-1, while in Kamarin, the mean indoor dose rate was 0.089 µSv.h-1 and...

Finally, everything goes well... The measurements were stopped in the village of Kamaryn in late July. I collected all the measurements from the website: 634 measurements in the village, two hot spots identified, 17 kids involved in the measurements (8 girls and 9 boys), that's perfect! Now I have to make the analysis of these huge amount of data. For this study in the village, the next step will be to go back in Kamaryn in order to discuss the results with the... Lire la suite
It is absolutely amazing the way the number of measurement is increasing. Today, there are more than 500 measurements in the village, and also outside the village, on the road, on the river, and in the field near de village. On of the pupills goes probably fishing with his father on the river, and since, we have some dots floating on the river. Others go on the road in the direction of the reserve, others turn around the village, etc... It looks like each of the... Lire la suite
We are safe back home since Frinday evening and we are currently following the number of measurements appearing on the map. During these three days, it was Suprun and Igor who had the Openradiation kits in their hands. Moren than 80 measurements in three days! From far away, it seems to me that the young people from Kamaryn like playing with this tool! Have a look on the map: the Kamaryn village is progressively covered by blue points...

Yesterday we were in Kamaryn to meet the group of 17 children who accepted to participate. They all participate during the year in a scientific club dedicated to the study of radioactivity in their environment. We had an intense meeting, explaining the goals of our work and the way the openradiation system is working. So, they had to learn some french words, since the application in only in french... Well, it would be of interest to provide this application in other languages, such as... Lire la suite
We are well arrived in Gomel city, after a long trip from France. On sunday, few measurements were made at home and several measurements were made yesterday during the trip. Unfortunately, we loose the GPS location during the flight when leaving France. Or perhaps du to the altitude of the plane, I don't know. Anyhow, only two measurements were taken during the flight, one soon after the take off and one ten minutes later, when the plane was above the french city of... Lire la suite
We are four scientists coming soon in Gomel, Belarus, to work with the population living in the village of Kamaryn on daily radiation protection. Our names are Jean-Marc (mission leader for Open radiation, working at IRSN), Pascal and Melanie from CEPN, and Wataru, coming from Japan to conduct a study with the D-shuttle system. This study is possible only with the very strong involvement of our Belarus partner Andrei and his assistant Aliona, from the Research institute of... Lire la suite
