ReActions is an information resource newsletter from the American Nuclear Society for teachers interested in the nuclear sciences. The new December issue highlights the upcoming National Nuclear Science Week (January 23-27) —along with online information sources for teachers using National Nuclear Science Week events to enhance classroom learning.
ReActions features some of the many ways that nuclear science and technology is important in everyday life and includes one of the many classroom group research activities available through ANS. This issue also spotlights National Engineers Week (February 19-25). Career opportunities abound in nuclear science and technology, and teachers will want to be sure to use the many ANS information resources available for their students.
David Pointer, chair of the ANS Public Information Committee, said, “ReActions is a great resource for K-12 science teachers to keep up-to-date on developments in nuclear science education, and the newsletter highlights hands-on activities that teachers can use in the classroom as well as ANS online educational resources and materials.”
