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.

The Sodium Reactor Experiment
In February 1957, construction was completed on the Sodium Reactor Experiment (SRE), a sodium-cooled, graphite-moderated reactor with an output of 20 MWt. The design of theSRE had begun three years earlier in 1954, and construction started in April 1955. On April 25, 1957, the reactor reached criticality, and the SRE operated until February 1964.

The nuclear industry is highly impacted by national policy. From waste management to R&D funding to energy policy in general, policy decisions shape projects across the whole industry. If you ever wondered
how engineers and scientist can help influence this policy, the ANS Congressional Fellowship is a great opportunity to get directly involved. This session will highlight the experiences of panelists who
took their technical background and transitioned into policy areas through the ANS Congressional Fellowship. Whether you have questions about what an ANS Congressional Fellow does or about recent policies priorities, this session will provide insights on the relationship between policy and the nuclear industry.
