Course Overview


The Power of Splitting

This section would be covered in a week and is divided into two modules:

  • Understanding Fission
    Here we will explore the science behind nuclear energy and the different types of fission reactions. Join us to gain insights into the benefits of nuclear fission as a potential energy source.

  • How Nuclear Fission Works
    In this module, we'll explore how nuclear fission was used to create devastating atomic bombs during World War II, making it a technology with both peaceful and destructive potential.


Unleashing the Atom

This section would be covered in a week and is divided into four modules:

  • From The Bomb to Power Plant
    Fission technology has revolutionized our world. Understanding the science behind it can help us harness its potential for energy production while avoiding its destructive capabilities.

  • Mission Readiness Test
    Test your understanding with some super fun and awesome trivia questions and answers about the incredible power of nuclear fission, including its history and potential impact on the world.


The Atomic Adventure

This section would be covered in a week and is divided into four modules:

  • Finding Alternatives to Uranium
    In this module, you will explore alternative sources of nuclear energy based on fission and learn about the advantages and challenges associated with each. 

  • Path Towards Thorium
    Explore the potential of thorium as a safer and more abundant alternative to uranium in nuclear energy. Learn about its properties, benefits, and challenges in this informative module.
