Nuclear science and technology is used in many aspects of our day-to-day lives – more than most people ever realize! By learning about the wide range of applications of nuclear science, from producing reliable and abundant quantities of clean electricity to diagnosing and treating medical conditions, sterilizing medical equipment, making food and water safer, and controlling the spread of deadly diseases, teachers and students will be better equipped to consider nuclear’s future role in Canada and the world.

The Canadian Nuclear Association is a non-profit organization established in 1960 to represent the nuclear industry in Canada and promote the development and growth of nuclear technologies for peaceful purposes.

Let’s Talk Science is an award-winning, national charitable organization focused on education and outreach to support youth development. They create and deliver unique learning programs and services that engage children, youth and educators in science, technology, engineering and mathematics (STEM).
