There are many resources available on the internet to assist teachers at all grade levels in preparing lessons, assignments, field trips, etc. about nuclear and radiation related topics. The links on this page point to some helpful sources. Note that in order to prepare a balanced lesson, you need to consider the source of the information. Anti-nuclear sources will play down or ignore the benefits of nuclear technology while amplifiying its drawbacks and risks. (Many make no distinction between nuclear weapons and nuclear energy). Pro-nuclear sources will concentrate on the benefits. Some government and academic sites will try to be more balanced. To get a truly balanced picture, try to get material from a variety of sites.
Other good sources of classroom material include your local nuclear power plant (most have extensive public outreach programs, visitor centers, tours, etc.), or research centre, as well as many of the web sites listed on our general page. More detailed information on a variety of subjects can be found on other pages of this site. Consult our site map for more.
