Nuclear Science & Engineering for Secondary Science Teachers

This is the 34th summer course on energy topics to be conducted by the University of Missouri Research Reactor Center faculty. The class is designed specifically for high school science teachers to provide the basics of nuclear science, types of radiation (including radiation detection and protection), industrial applications of nuclear science, and current and future nuclear power generation technologies (including Small Modular Reactors). Presentations will be technically oriented at an introductory graduate level, and are structured for secondary teachers of physics, biology, chemistry, mathematics, earth sciences, and related subjects.
