Lecture on nuclear energy’s role in climate-related innovation coming up
As part of the Purdue University–Duke Energy Understanding Tomorrow’s Nuclear Energy Lecture Series, Richard K. Lester of the Massachusetts Institute of Technology, will give a speech on Wednesday, November 30, from 3:30 to 5:00 p.m. EST. Lester, associate provost and a professor of nuclear science and engineering at MIT, was previously head of the university’s Department of Nuclear Science and Engineering. The event will also feature a panel discussion with Lester, Lefteri H. Tsoukalas, and Morgan Smith.
Register now: The lecture, “Tough Tech for Climate: Innovation Challenges, University Responsibilities, and Some Comments on the Nuclear Role,” can be attended in person at Eliza Fowler Hall, in the Stewart Center of Purdue University in West Lafayette, Indiana. The talk will also be available to watch on YouTube, where it will be live streamed. Advance registration is required. Following registration, individuals will receive a confirmation email containing information about joining the meeting.
The next generation of nuclear.
The American Nuclear Society exists to aid the next generation in their pursuit of advancing, fostering, and promoting the development and application of nuclear sciences and technologies for the benefit of mankind. ANS is committed to providing students with the knowledge, tools, and opportunities to achieve success in or out of the nuclear field. ANS Student Sections provide such a means and a student section may be established in any school that confers academic degrees and offers a curriculum in nuclear science and technology.
Student members play active roles in all facets of the ANS and students and their Sections are represented at the national level by the Student Director and the Student Sections Committee. Since 1998, the ANS Board of Directors has designated one seat for a student member and elections are held to fill this two-year position. If you have any suggestions or comments regarding ANS student affairs, you can send them to:
