ANS members have devised numerous ways to promote their profession among their friends, neighbors, and local communities. As professionals, we can educate in ways that enable others to continue to share the information they gain.

Here are examples:

Teacher Workshops

The ANS developed workshop titled "Detecting Radiation in Our Radioactive World" introduces elementary and high school teachers to concepts of radiation, nuclear science, and technology. Presented by the American Nuclear Society, ANS members, and related groups, Teacher Workshops assist teachers with ideas for classroom exercises and information about radioactive sources that can be safely used in the classroom. Teachers who complete the workshop learn how to use Geiger counters to detect radiation from background and manmade sources and, while supplies last, they receive a FREE CD-V700 analog Geiger counter. To learn more, contact the Outreach Department.

Speakers Bureau

The ANS Speakers Bureau is a roster of professionals who will address many topics pertaining to the nuclear science and technology field. Speaker Bureau members engage journalists, students, and public audiences. To contact an expert, send an e-mail to the Communications Specialist. Better yet, register to be a speaker. For more information contact the ANS Speakers Bureau Coordinator via e-mail.
