Citizen Education on Nuclear Technology (CENT).
Intermountain Science Experience Center, ID Falls, ID.
Using an interdisciplinary approach, this curriculum focuses on an understanding of: (1) the fundamental principles of operation of a nuclear power plant; (2) the place of nuclear energy in the overall energy-supply-demand situation; (3) risk-benefit balance of the major energy sources; and (4) the role of political action in the development of nuclear energy sources. It is suitable for both high school courses and adults in communities where nuclear energy has become an issue. Technological, environmental, ecological, sociological, economic, and political units as well as a decision making module for use in continuing community action are also included. (Author/DS)
