This document is one of five learning packets on alternative energy (see note) developed as part of a descriptive curriculum research project in Arkansas. The overall objectives of the learning packets are to improve the level of instruction in the alternative energies by vocational exploration teachers, and to facilitate the integration of new content on energy into existing vocational programs. Each learning packet contains unit objectives, information, transparency masters, lecture outline, suggested activities, student assignment sheets, tests, and answers to the tests. This unit on nuclear energy covers the following topics: introduction to nuclear power; the basis for nuclear power; nuclear power plants; types of radiation; effects of radiation on humans; processing of uranium; radioactive waste; and nuclear fusion. A glossary is also provided. (KC)
