NRC pushes decision on Holtec CISF to May
The Nuclear Regulatory Commission has delayed issuing a decision on the licensing of Holtec International’s proposed consolidated interim storage facility (CISF) in New Mexico for at least two more months. In a letter sent to Holtec on March 20, the NRC said the delay was “due to unforeseen resource constraints.”
Introduce your elementary school students to the atom and the world of nuclear energy with digital lesson plans, project starters, career resources, and more!
Start small by exploring an atom as the foundation for nuclear energy. Then, go big and compare energy sources for electricity solutions! Navigating Nuclear provides you with standards-aligned resources to connect students to applications of nuclear energy on land, in the sea, and even in deep space!
Educator Lesson Plan | 45 Minutes
Students are introduced to the concept of the atom. The class will simulate an atom’s structure as they take on the role of parts of the nucleus. They will be led to understand that different kinds of atoms make up everything around us.
Download Digital Lesson
Students will be challenged to investigate different energy sources as they seek to find an electricity solution for a remote location.
