View Resource Nuclear Mice Demonstration: The Principles of Chain Reactions

The Materials Science and Technology Teacher's Workshop (MAST) provides this activity to illustrate the principles of chain reactions. The demonstration uses ping pong balls and mouse traps to show the chain reaction process involved in fission. Each mouse trap is placed into a large container and given a ping pong ball placed on the trigger. Another ping pong ball is introduced into the system,...

View Resource Nuclear Power

This site, created by David P. Stern, is an introduction to nuclear fission, its controlled release in power stations, problems of nuclear waste, and nuclear accidents. A linked web page discusses nuclear weapons, their effect, their ban, and "dirty bombs". This material supplements a previous section on fission in the Sun and the curve of binding energy in "From Stargazers to Starships". A...

The T-2 Nuclear Information Service Web Site is presented by Los Alamos National Laboratory, which is operated by the University of California for the US Department of Energy. The site "concentrates on nuclear modeling, nuclear data, cross sections, nuclear masses, ENDF, NJOY data processing, nuclear astrophysics, radioactivity, radiation shielding, data for medical radiotherapy, data for...

View Resource ABC's of Nuclear Science

Produced by the Lawrence Berkeley National Laboratory, the ABC's of Nuclear Science site gives high school students and perhaps even entry level college students a good general overview of nuclear science. Through descriptions and illustrations, students get to explore nuclear structure; radioactivity; alpha, beta, and gamma decay; half-life; reactions; fusion; fission; cosmic rays; and...
