Nuclear Science Week 2018 Impact Report

NSW 2018 International Impact Report

A Message from the National Steering Chair:

Nuclear Science Week (NSW) is getting bigger, with many great voices are joining into the conversation about the exciting world of nuclear. Each person helps us to improve the planning processes to create learning opportunities and showcase great science and acknowledged innovation. I want to thank and recognize our superb International Steering Committee of hard-working professionals from around the globe in so many places and fields of work. Your efforts, individual and in teams make NSW the most effective opportunity for broad general communication with the non-technical audiences that we know are interested. (more…)

Day 1 – The Power of Science Fiction Stories
Human imagination is a powerful tool. On one extreme, this imagination creates stories to help us understand our world and our place in it. On another extreme, imagination explores the universe and applies those discoveries into technology. Science fiction stories synthesize these two extremes of human imagination to help people find their place in a world with rapidly changing technology.

NAYGN’s Postcard Push Day 2018

Postcard Push Day is one way that NAYGN is reaching out to government officials to ask for their support of nuclear energy.  The idea is to flood the desks of politicians by having chapters across the US and Canada put thousands of postcards in the mail on the same day.  While the first 2 or 3 postcards might not be read, the overwhelming number of cards will eventually force people to take notice, and hopefully, inspire them to take action!


Make sure to drop your postcards in the mail on October 11, 2108.  This way they arrive during Nuclear Science Week (Oct 15-19).
