Hosting the NATIONAL EVENT for two or more days of the observation week is an honor and privilege that can bring notoriety and visibility to organizations as partners in the region. Being the National Site host requires concentrated effort and support. By hosting, event planners also build new contacts and networks, share in recognition, reach out to the community at large and have fun. The scale of and number of days that the events will take place are subject to the planning efforts of the Host Committee.
“During Nuclear Science Week, teachers, students, employers and communities in the US participate in activities that build awareness of the industry and of those who work in it every day,” says Ivan Baldwin of BECBC. “Ours will be the first NSW connection outside of North America which is great news. BECBC is working with the organizers and with museum staff at The Beacon in Whitehaven to create an event in West Cumbria that coincides with n-eboc 15, previews NSW, highlights opportunities and strengthens connections to the nuclear sector and Nuclear Science Week in the US.”
