The Navigating Nuclear: Energizing our World”(TM) program belonging to the American Nuclear Society now has resources for elementary level students in addition to middle school and high school curriculum. Current and planned resources for K-5 include classroom lessons, STEM projects, and a virtual field trip. According to their website, nuclear science and technology can be incorporated into any life or physical science STEM curriculum.
The Society also sponsors scholarships for undergraduate and graduate students pursuing degrees in nuclear science or nuclear engineering fields.
None of these programs happen without contributions from people and organizations. Do you believe in the importance of nuclear energy to our future? Do you believe in the power of education to change the world for the better? If so please join Deltech Kiln and Furnace Design, LLC in supporting this important work.
