OVERVIEW OF UNIT
This is a student collaborative project with the goal of learning about the nuclear world. Students will organize themselves into research teams with a specific goal in mind. This is a student directed project with the instructor acting as the resource guide.
The topic of nuclear energy is not covered very well by school
districts for a number of reasons. The purpose of this program is to make the
learning of this material easy and exciting in what you will discover. It will
be easy for the teacher to turn the students loose and let them be responsible
for what they will discover. Students will not be restricted to the chapter
in their textbooks.
