Radtown USA

The U.S. Environmental Protection Agency’s student-focused radiation website, RadTown, has launched with a new look and feel. This interactive, virtual community provides information for students  and teachers about different radiation sources, links to additional information and all new graphics and content. Please visit the all new RadTown USA at

A new addition to RadTown is EPA’s Radiation Education Activities for middle and high school students (grades 6-12) which includes lesson plans covering radiation basics, sources of radiation, radiation protection, exposure versus contamination, uranium mining methods, radon and more. All educational activities are aligned with the Next Generation Science Standards and the Vocabulary Materials are aligned with the Common Core State Standards.

Dare you enter the quantum world of Nuclear? Where things are not just stranger than you might imagine, but stranger than you can imagine! Witness the interplay of energies and physics at the tiniest of scales as you learn to play, discover and explore the chemical elements at the atomic level.screen568x568

Nuclear is a high tech educational application that dynamically models an interactive atom in a beautiful and intuitive way. In Nuclear, you get to build all the elements of the periodic table via a simple mechanic of adding and subtracting the atomic building blocks of neutrons, protons and electrons. The goal of the app is to let you learn about each of the elements of the periodic table by constructing a stable version of that element. Once a stable element has been created, it is unlocked in the periodic table. Can you create and unlock them all?

This app has been designed for all types of users: from children interested in learning through play about what matter is made of and how it works, to teachers looking for an intuitive and exciting way to help educate others on chemical elements.

Nuclear lets you:

  • Learn about the atom through this stunning 3D visualisation.
  • Explore the effects of manipulating matter at the atomic level.
  • Add or subtract protons, electrons or neutrons to create virtually any base chemical element.
  • Create and watch as unstable isotopes decay into more stable elements.
  • Through tactile exploration, grasp an understanding of what we and everything around us is made of.








mayorWantedElectroCity is an online computer game that lets players manage their own virtual towns and cities. It’s great fun to play and also teaches players all about energy, sustainability and environmental management in New Zealand.

You will be given complete control over a small town. What you do with that town is up to you. You can build stuff, destroy stuff, and even leave stuff alone.

New Zealand is nuclear-free, so nuclear power plants cannot be built in our country. However, this game is intended to provide players with a base knowledge of energy generation, so nuclear power is included.
