The American Nuclear Society, working with the Girl Scouts of Greater Chicago and Northwest Indiana Council, has established the Get to Know Nuclear patch, which can be earned by any Scout in the U.S. who meets the requirements.
The Get to Know Nuclear patch requirements focus on learning about nuclear science and technology through teamwork, and are flexible so scouts of all ages can Get to Know Nuclear! Some of the direct benefits of participating in a workshop are that it introduces nuclear science to students and attending adults. It encourages students to pursue nuclear science in their college education and as a future career.
Participants in the workshop will learn about careers in nuclear, the atom, radiation and dose, and radioactive decay. They will also have the opportunity to tour the control room simulator and dress like a nuclear radiation worker for the day.
