Event description


Navigating Nuclear: Energizing Our World is a NEW partnership between the American Nuclear Society and Discovery Education designed to educate today's students about the important role of nuclear science in the modern world. Featuring standards-aligned resources, Navigating Nuclear encourages students to explore the applications of nuclear science including energy, medicine, geology, and astronomy.

Virtual Field Trip: Join us as we go behind the scenes at the Palo Verde Nuclear Generating Station as we explore how nuclear technologies are helping to develop more environmentally friendly electrical power! Don’t miss this exclusive look at one of the most unique nuclear power plants in the world. Your students will learn how electricity is generated at the plant through the nuclear fission process and how nuclear energy compares with other sources of energy. You’ll also get to see how drones, robots, and virtual reality are used to support safety and help create electricity.

Join us on Twitter for a live chat and show us your students tuning in using #NavigatingNuclearVFT!
