Exploring Nuclear Energy with Hands-On Activities

February 26 @ 10:00 am - 12:00 pm

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.
