Teaching Radiation, Energy And Technology

(TREAT is a TUITION FREE professional development program for teachers)

The purpose of this course is to provide interested teachers with balanced and up-to-date information, materials and hands-on techniques for teaching nuclear science and technology. The general population, the news media, and even some leaders of our communities and governments require more up-to-date information about the language and basic concepts of the nuclear era in order to make informed decisions. As we continue to use radioactive and nuclear materials in the advancement of medicine, in industry, for energy, and in the defense of our country, it is imperative that we develop within our population an understanding of these materials and their uses.

Dates and Times: This five (5) day course will begin on Monday, July 25, 1994 , and be completed on Friday, July 29, 1994. All sessions will begin at 8:30 AM and end at 4:30 PM unless otherwise announced.
