ORAU K-12 goes virtual: Setting teachers up for success with remote professional development
Educators around the country had to make a huge pivot from classroom to virtual learning this spring. ORAU’s K-12 STEM team had to follow suit with this summer’s teacher professional development programs. Because of the pandemic, all 29 sessions that would have normally been held in a classroom setting were instead offered in a virtual environment.
"Is it radioactive?" The questions we get
Are Brazil nuts radioactive? Can I get radiation poisoning from my Fiestaware® plates? Are kitty litter and lawn fertilizer really made from uranium? These are the kinds of questions that lead many people to the treasure trove of information found in the ORAU Radiation History Museum section of the ORAU website.
