4-Day Science Teacher Workshop
“The Science of Nuclear Energy & Radiation”
VCU’s Department of Mechanical and Nuclear Engineering, the Virginia Section of the American Nuclear Society (VA-ANS), the Virginia Chapter of the Health Physics Society (HPS), the North American Young Generation in Nuclear (NA-YGN), and the US Women in Nuclear (WIN) invite you to attend “The Science of Nuclear Energy & Radiation.”
Middle and high school science teachers are invited to enjoy four days of lectures, labs, hands-on activities and tours in an immersive all-inclusive workshop that will provide educators with the opportunity to sharpen their knowledge and understanding of nuclear energy and radiation, enabling them to provide their students with factual and up-to-date information about nuclear science and technology. The 2023 workshop will be hosted by Virginia Commonwealth University School of Engineering in Richmond and will feature tours of the North Anna Nuclear Power Station and VCU’s Nuclear Medicine Facilities, as well as numerous laboratories and hands-on activities full with ideas to implement in the classroom. The $95 registration fee includes 4 nights of accommodations at the Graduate hotel near VCU campus, all meals, all tours, four Continuing Education Credits, and all educational materials.
Instructors and lecturers are experts in the fields they are to present and will be discussing topics including nuclear energy and technology, nuclear power plant basics and safety, functionality and use of Geiger-Müller counters, and basic information on, biological effects of, and beneficial uses of radiation. The goal of this workshop is to provide educators with the opportunity to sharpen their knowledge and understanding of nuclear energy and radiation, enabling them to provide their students with factual and up-to-date information about nuclear science and technology.
