CNTA provides the resources listed below in order to make education on nuclear technology more accessible and adaptable to varying audiences.
Lifelong Learning Resources
Each year CNTA teaches a class for the Academy for Lifelong Learning. Topics have included: SRS’s impact on the Environment, Plutonium & our National Security etc.
The class presentations, videos, and other resources are available HERE.
Information on the Academy of Lifelong Learning at USC-Aiken is available here.
Classroom Blitz in honor of Leo Sein
CNTA and the local section of the American Nuclear Society (ANS-SR) jointly conduct a weeklong “blitz” into area high schools that is held in conjunction with Nuclear Science Week. Each year more than 1200 students are impacted!
The classroom lesson includes an overview of nuclear fundamentals, applications and career opportunities partnered with hands-on demonstrations.
Need a subject matter expert to help in your classroom? CNTA has speakers available that can come to your classroom to discuss atomic and nuclear fundamentals, nuclear energy, nuclear technologies and applications, careers in nuclear, and a wide range of other topics. We also conduct hands-on demonstrations and activities.
If you are interested in having members from CNTA come to your classroom to teach, please contact the office at firstname.lastname@example.org.
Citizens for Nuclear Technology Awareness is a not-for-profit, educational organization dedicated to providing factual, objective information on nuclear subjects for the public, teachers, students, public officials, and at public hearings. We do this to improve public knowledge of the real benefits and comparative risks of nuclear technologies, including nuclear production of electricity, nuclear medicine, food irradiation, nuclear waste management, and the health effects of low levels of radiation.
If you would like to request a speaker for your events, please contact Jim Marra; email@example.com.
SEND US YOUR QUESTIONS
In addition to subject-matter experts who can guest teach your class, we also have experts on standby to answer questions. Send us an email at firstname.lastname@example.org and we will connect you with an expert to answer any science related questions!
While CNTA has many resources available to teachers and the community, we are not the only ones in the area available to help. Check out our additional resources page for virtual lab programs, videos, and contacts to other organizations in the area that provide education outreach related to nuclear matters.
We also have a clearing house of fun facts about nuclear on our Nuclear Graphics page. These provide real life uses and examples of nuclear technology in our every day lives.
