Nuclear power developments in China and the world
The development of human society and technology is closely correlated to the means of energy acquisition, utilization method, efficiency, and spectrum of applications. High quality of life and sustainable socioeconomic development require a sustainable and reliable energy supply. Wealth, health, food, water, infrastructure, education, and even life expectancy itself strongly correlate with the consumption of energy per capita. Having an adequate, reliable, affordable, eco-friendly, and sustainable supply of energy is becoming more crucial for economic development and improving human well-being.

Navigating Nuclear: Energizing Our World
In 2018, ANS set the ambitious goal of ensuring every teacher and student in America has access to fact-based nuclear science and technology resources. Navigating Nuclear: Energizing Our World™, the K-12 nuclear science and energy curriculum created in partnership with Discovery Education and lead funding from the U.S. Department of Energy, Office of Nuclear Energy, was a first step in achieving that goal. The program has reached more than 1.6 million students since its launch.
