Navigating Nuclear

Workshop and Presentation Modules

The Navigating Nuclear Science presentation modules cover essential topics in nuclear science and technology. Each module includes a high-quality PowerPoint presentation with speaker notes, recommendations for activities to augment the learning, and links to lesson plans with downloadable versions of handouts and worksheets.

All topics are based on disciplinary core ideas in the Next Generation Science Standards. Some are tied to lessons in ANS’s Navigating Nuclear: Energizing Our World™ created in partnership with Discovery Education.
