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.
Mathematics & Computation
Division members promote the advancement of mathematical and computational methods for solving problems arising in all disciplines encompassed by the Society. They place particular emphasis on numerical techniques for efficient computer applications to aid in the dissemination, integration, and proper use of computer codes, including preparation of computational benchmark and development of standards for computing practices, and to encourage the development on new computer codes and broaden their use.

National Museum of Nuclear Science and History explores “atomic” culture
For many of us, the toys of our childhood leave indelible marks on our consciousness, affecting our long-term perceptions and attitudes about certain things. Hot Wheels may inspire a lifelong fascination with fast, flashy automobiles, while Barbies might shape ideas about beauty and self-image. For the generation who grew up during the Atomic Age—the post–World War II era from roughly the mid-1940s to the early 1960s—the toys, games, and entertainment of their childhoods might have included things like atomic pistols, atomic trains, rings with tiny amounts of radioactive elements, and comic books, puzzles, and music about nuclear weapons.

Closed toed shoes are a must – we will be accessing some areas where closed toed shoes are required by procedure
Individuals must be self-ambulatory – Due to evacuation requirements inside the protected area, all personnel and guests must be self-ambulatory meaning no crutches, scooters, or wheelchairs. A cane is permissible if they feel they could manage a timely evacuation if needed (of course we have absolutely no expectation of needing such a thing!) – anyone needing these devices are of course welcome for the presentation portion of the tour and any activities inside the Owner Controlled Area.
We ask that folks declare in advance if they have any metal body parts, have recently received nuclear medical treatments or implants or wear religious or other headwear. All are perfectly acceptable; it just helps knowing in advance so we can be prepared with additional officers to get through security.
Site Size: Approximately 1,500 acres
Location: On the western shore of the Chesapeake Bay near Lusby in Calvert County, Md.
