In the Classroom

For Teachers

Nuclear science and technology can be incorporated into any STEM lesson plan from biology, chemistry, earth science, physics, physical science, life science, environmental and just general science.

Teacher Workshops

teacherworkshopDuring ANS teacher workshops, educators interact with nuclear professionals to explore basic concepts, learn about experiments and demonstrations suitable for the classroom, and experience hands-on activities to share with their students.

Our teacher workshops are possible as a result of the tremendous support from ANS members who volunteer their time and expertise. Workshops are paid for by funding from the Center of Nuclear Science and Technology Information.

Please visit our calendar of events to locate a workshop in your area.
