McKlveen, John W., Ed.
The conference goal was to provide educators with knowledge and motivation about energy in order to establish an awareness of it in their classrooms. Speakers were from universities, research laboratories, utilities, government agencies, and private businesses. Coal, gas and oil, geothermal and solar sources of energy in Arizona were each discussed by different experts. Several of the presentations dealt with nuclear energy from nuclear theory to specific applications with discussions of safeguards, waste disposal alternatives, and economic considerations. Other speakers described the use of nuclear physics in fine arts, archeology, agriculture, and criminology. (TM)
