Our project "Internet viewed by school children".
Interactions among pears in school are not limited to the school process and informal contacts of the mates. Today school children with growing interest refer to the
Internet, looking for either information or communication and entertainment etc. According to the national project "Education" all schools will be connected to the
fast Internet soon. Alongside with that it's been actively discussed all the security matters of Internet when referred to school children. What school children
themselves think about the Internet? What would they like it to be? How the Net should be optimized in order to make it convenient and secure for children of
school age? The range of research works, competitions and education programs will be devoted to these issues within the project "Internet viewed by school children".
The Project - The Museum of the Internet History is an attempt to overview the world and Russian Internet in its' historical development from the
first days of its appearance. Museum's virtual halls and displays tell about the founders of the Internet, its development stages and the most significant events in
it. In the Museum you can find a lot of different pieces: maps, pictures, documents and other materials which illustrate the history of the Net. Even Founding Fathers
of the Russian Internet-segment, who were interviewed by the Foundation members, introduce for the Museum some interesting data.
