Nuclear science and technology can be incorporated into any STEM lesson plan from biology, chemistry, earth science, physics, physical science, life science, environmental and just general science.
ANS’s engaging activities are designed to engage the learning styles of students of all ages. Each activity, from making atoms visible with cloud chambers to using licorice to demonstrate radioactive half-life, is classroom-tested to improve nuclear science understanding .
During ANS teacher workshops, educators interact with nuclear professionals to explore basic concepts, learn about experiments and demonstrations suitable for the classroom, and experience hands-on activities to share with their students.
Our teacher workshops are possible as a result of the tremendous support from ANS members who volunteer their time and expertise. Workshops are paid for by funding from the Center of Nuclear Science and Technology Information.
Please visit our calendar of events to locate a workshop in your area.
ANS has grade-appropriate STEM resources and project materials available for teachers that explain the many uses of the atom and the vital role of nuclear technology. Electronic versions can be downloaded or viewed on this site, or teachers can purchase prints to handout in their classrooms. To purchase ANS materials, please visit the ANS Store.
