Why: Nuclear Science Week (NSW) is a week-long celebration to focus local, regional, national, and international interest on all aspects of nuclear science. Each year during the third week of October, educators, students, employers, and the community 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.
Nuclear Science Week invites people from all over the globe to “Get to Know Nuclear.” Nuclear Science Week sponsors include National Museum of Nuclear Science & Industry, Palo Verde Generating Station, Southern Company, Entergy, Exelon, APS, General Atomics, TerraPower, NuScale, and NEI.
