Title: American Nuclear Society: For Educators
Url: http://nuclearconnect.org/in-the-classroom/for-teachers
Publisher: American Nuclear Society
Description: STEM educators may want to peruse this collection of classroom resources offered by the American Nuclear Society (ANS). These resources include classroom experiments and lesson plans, as well as downloadable fact sheets and posters. Most are intended for students in grades 5-12 and are aligned with Next Generation Science Standards. Examples of activities include making an electroscope out of household objects to detect static electricity, a half-life lab using candy to model the concept of radioactive decay, and a mini Rutherford activity where students "try to determine the shape of an unknown object by using the scientific thought process of creating a hypothesis, then testing it through inference." This collection could be improved by categorization for easier browsing, and while many of the resources here are available for free, this site also lists some that are available for purchase. However, the free gems here make this site worth the effort. These educational materials are hosted by the Center for Nuclear Science and Technology Information, an outreach initiative of the ANS that seeks to "encourage and inspire fun nuclear education for K-12 students [and] help people learn the many benefits that nuclear science and technology brings to their lives."
