ANS is committed to advancing, fostering, and promoting the development and application of nuclear sciences and technologies to benefit society.
Explore the many uses for nuclear science and its impact on energy, the environment, healthcare, food, and more.
Education, Training & Workforce Development
The Education, Training & Workforce Development Division provides communication among the academic, industrial, and governmental communities through the exchange of views and information on matters related to education, training and workforce development in nuclear and radiological science, engineering, and technology. Industry leaders, education and training professionals, and interested students work together through Society-sponsored meetings and publications, to enrich their professional development, to educate the general public, and to advance nuclear and radiological science and engineering.

Nuclear Science Week: the ANS local and student sections events
Nuclear Science Week (NSW) is a celebration designed to focus local, regional, national, and international interest on all aspects of nuclear science. National events marking the 11th annual NSW took place October 19–23 in Washington, D.C. This year’s theme was “Think Clean. Think Solutions. Think Nuclear.”
Several ANS local and student sections from around the world organized their own events to celebrate NSW, as follows:
Technical Session|Sponsored by OPD
Wednesday, June 10, 2020|1:30–3:15PM (2:30–4:15PM EDT)
W. Neal Mann (The University of Texas at Austin)
N. Dianne B. Ezell (ORNL)
Daniel Goldberg (American Nuclear Society)
Energy storage systems could be integrated with nuclear power plants to increase flexibility and potentially enhance revenues. This session will cover energy storage technologies that could couple to various coolant temperatures (medium- to high-temperature) or be integral to a plant's design. Energy storage classes include, but are not limited to, electrochemical batteries, mechanical compression/liquefaction of fluids, gravitational potential energy, heat storage materials (solids, liquids, gases; single- and multi-phase fluids), and power-to-X/synfuels.
