Giving Tuesday: Bringing nuclear to every classroom

November 30, 2020, 9:51PMANS News

Giving Tuesday is a nationwide day of giving back to the not-for-profit community. For Giving Tuesday, the American Nuclear Society is on a mission–jumpstart funding for a special initiative, Nuclear in Every Classroom. This landmark effort helps ensure nuclear science and technology crosses the desks – virtual or in-person – of every k-12 student and teacher in the nation. The initiative builds upon the success of Navigating Nuclear: Energizing Our World, the ANS partnership with Discovery Education that has reached over 1.3 million students.

Nuclear in Every Classroom will amplify our message by promoting Navigating Nuclear resources nationwide, building the capacity of educators to teach nuclear with confidence, mobilizing members to bring nuclear to life in their communities, and increasing student engagement through augmented reality experiences and other leading-edge educational strategies.

ANS calls upon the nuclear community to support our Giving Tuesday campaign. Every dollar makes a difference and brings us closer to our goal – connecting students to the wonders of nuclear.
