Curiosity. Learning. Inspiration. Classrooms are filled with children eager to know more. ANS is ready to stand side-by-side with our nation’s educators as we launch a bold new education initiative, Navigating Nuclear: Energizing Our World™. Through this program students will discover the answers to important questions like: How does nuclear power our homes and communities, ensure safe food for our table, keep us healthy, and catapult us to the far reaches of space?
The ANS Center for Nuclear Science and Technology Information has joined forces with Discovery Education to reach classrooms across the country with a suite of innovative curricular resources beginning this August.
Nearly 50% of U.S. schools already use Discovery Education resources. The curriculum and education materials will be available to all other schools and educators who don’t use Discovery Education through the Navigating Nuclear website, also launching in August.
Navigating Nuclear will explore topics such as:
The program’s digital platform will be lively and responsive, offering teachers a leading-edge educational experience with the newest information. Students will be able to delve deeply into the nuclear world, applying their creativity to self-directed STEM projects, finding inspiration in the stories of nuclear professionals, and exploring a power plant through an interactive virtual field trip.
It is critical that we educate people on the benefits and value of the peaceful uses of nuclear science and technology. We’re starting in the classroom one child at a time, engaging, educating, and inspiring the next generation.
Help support Navigating Nuclear and the ANS Center for Nuclear Science and Technology Information by making a contribution today.
Navigating Nuclear is an ANS Center for Nuclear Science and Technology Information program developed in conjunction with Discovery Education.
