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 www.epa.gov/radtown/.
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.
