Exploring Nuclear Energy with Hands-On Activities
February 26, 2022 @ 9:00 am - 11:00 am CST
Calling all high school aged young women in the Chicago, Philadelphia, DC, and Baltimore areas!
Ever wonder what happens inside a nuclear reaction? Join us for a fun, hands-on, interactive session where we’ll delve into the chemistry of nuclear energy, learn about how a nuclear power plant operates, and how nuclear technology is used outside the energy field. Explore the concepts of radioactive decay, atomic mass, stable and unstable isotopes, and calculate your personal radiation dose.
All attendees will receive hands-on materials for the session in advance.
Register by February 7th!
