Providing Workshops for Teachers
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.

ANS 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.
