About National Nuclear Science Week

What is Nuclear Science Week?

National Nuclear Science Week is a national, broadly observed week-long celebration to focus local, regional and national interest on all aspects of nuclear science. Each day, October 20-24, 2014, will provide for learning about the contributions, innovations and opportunities that can be found by exploring nuclear science.

During the week, educators, students, employers and the community will participate in a national recognition of how nuclear science plays a vital role in the lives of Americans…and the world. Activities during the week are intended to build awareness of the contributions of the nuclear science industry and those who work in it every day.
