This one-week course, offered by the University of Missouri Research Reactor (MURR), is designed specifically for high school science teachers and will provide the basics of nuclear science, types of radiation (including radiation detection and protection), industrial applications of nuclear science, and nuclear power generation. This course will be of great value to instructors who wish to develop a deeper understanding of nuclear science and to implement this information in the classroom. Presentations will be technically-oriented at an introductory graduate level, and are structured for secondary teachers of physics, biology, chemistry, mathematics, and earth sciences.
Over 650 teachers have attended our past classes, representing over 250 schools across Missouri and the Midwest. The course instructor and guest speakers are subject experts on nuclear science and its engineering applications, and current topics in nuclear energy. They have worked extensively with regional high schools and community groups in educational projects.
Sponsors for the course are the American Nuclear Society, Ameren Missouri’s Callaway Energy Center, the University of Missouri Research Reactor, the U.S. Department of Energy, and the MU Student Section of the American Nuclear Society.
