Providing Workshops for Teachers
During 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.
ANS teacher workshops are possible as a result of the tremendous support from ANS members who volunteer their time and expertise. The cost of providing the workshops is underwritten by ANS along with support from ANS Local Sections, national laboratories, industry-related companies, and individuals.
Providing Materials for Teachers and Students
ANS Outreach's newsletter for teachers, ReActions, provides its 20,000 subscribers with articles on nuclear technology, classroom activities, and information about upcoming events.
ANS Outreach also publishes classroom resources and project materials that explain in grade-appropriate language the many uses of the atom and the vital role of nuclear technology.
For students, ANS offers broad perspective on the many careers related to nuclear science. The Society also provides scholarship opportunities to students studying for careers in the field.
