ReActions August 2017

Janice HeadshotYou’re back! Or you will be soon. Though the school year has just gotten underway, it’s not too soon to start thinking about Nuclear Science Week (NSW), taking place this year from October 16–20 this year. Once again, ANS and the Center for Nuclear Science and Technology Information are playing “Tweet to Win.” Throughout the week, we’ll be watching our Twitter feed for pictures of your NSW activities. We’ve got great prizes for the winners, including a Geiger counter and cloud chambers. Read about how to win in the story below. In this issue, you’ll also find a story about the National Museum of Nuclear Science and History, the founder of Nuclear Science Week. And, be sure to read about the University of Colorado’s PhET online simulations, which bring nuclear science experiments into the classroom safely. So, welcome back! I hope this is your best year ever, and remember: we’ll be looking for your tweets during Nuclear Science Week.
