Atoms at Work 2023 Summer Camp
The School of Nuclear Engineering is excited to host Atoms at Work Summer Camp!
Lets partner together to lead and educate our community in clean and reliable nuclear energy!
June 18, 2023 - June 23, 2023
This Program is currently full for Summer 2023.
During the Atoms at Work Summer Program, rising high school seniors will undergo a crash course on all things nuclear. Each day of the one-week course will be a combination of interactive lectures and hands on experiments at Purdue's Nuclear Engineering and Radiation Laboratory (NERL). Students will have demonstrated to them concepts ranging from radiation detection to reactor physics and will be exposed to the topics and materials they will likely study in nuclear engineering in a fun and interactive manner. The experience will culminate, at the end of the week, with a hands-on lab where students will get to use the PUR-1 reactor for their final experiment along with a tour of a commercial nuclear power plant.
