Future job opportunities highlight Friday Plenary at ANS Student Conference
The second day of the 2021 ANS Virtual Student Conference, on April 9, hosted by North Carolina State University opened with the plenary, “Student Opportunities within the Nuclear Community.” The session featured three panelists, each representing a different sector of the nuclear community.
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
