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 Civil Nuclear Credit Program: An overview
Officially established on November 15, 2021, with the signing of the $1.2 trillion Infrastructure Investment and Jobs Act—aka the Bipartisan Infrastructure Law, or BIL—the Department of Energy’s Civil Nuclear Credit Program was designed to give owners/operators of commercial U.S. reactors the opportunity to apply for certification and competitively bid on credits to help support the continued operation of economically troubled units. Finally, the federal government, and not just certain farsighted state governments, would recognize nuclear energy for its important grid reliability and decarbonization attributes.
Learning about nuclear science and technology doesn’t have to happen only in the classroom. For years, ANS members have been bringing nuclear knowledge to Girl Scout and Boy Scout troops across the country. Whether it’s the Girl Scout Get to Know Nuclear patch or the BSA’s Nuclear Science Merit Badge, scout programs make learning about nuclear science and technology fun.
Many troops hold in-person workshops where troops earn the patch or badge in a single day or over a few days. Workshops don’t have to be in person, though!
We’ve gathered the resources you need to hold an event online or person-to-person. And we’re happy to connect you with an ANS member experienced in scouting events to assist your troop. Just contact us at firstname.lastname@example.org
