Event description

Description

This is a 2-hour guided tour experience by a radiation physicist or chemist or engineer at the San Onofre Nuclear Generating Station aka SONGS as it undergoes its decommissioning.

We will be walking about 2-miles uphill and downhill, up and down stairs, and outdoors.

This is strictly a walking tour to help SCOUTS (12-17 years old) understand the overall concepts of Nuclear Science.

*No merit badge counselor will be at hand to sign any blue cards for Scouts BSA.

Touring the San Onofre Plant is NOT REQUIRED to earn the Nuclear Science Merit Badge...

Touring the San Onofre Plant is helpful in meeting Requirement #4 or #6 of the Dr. Bernard Harris Supernova Award...
