U.S. WIN Chapters Support Nuclear Science Week
In 2014, a dozen U.S. WIN (Women in Nuclear) chapters sponsored outreach and learning opportunities across a variety of age groups and disciplines to communicate the importance of nuclear science. Activities included outreach information sessions with elementary students, hands on experiments with uranium nucleus models, and demonstrations on electromagnetism and half-life decay. Some chapters even took their program on the road by visiting multiple locations in one day. Chapter members logged dozens of volunteer hours and reached hundreds of community members, sharing the importance of nuclear science.
