Produced by the Lawrence Berkeley National Laboratory, the ABC's of Nuclear Science site gives high school students and perhaps even entry-level college students a good general overview of nuclear science. Through descriptions and illustrations, students get to explore nuclear structure; radioactivity; alpha, beta, and gamma decay; half-life; reactions; fusion; fission; cosmic rays; and antimatter.

In this classroom activity for grades 7-9, students use white marshmallows for protons and colored marshmallows for neutrons to construct atomic nuclei. The web site provides a student worksheet, but the idea could work for other atomic configurations. The activity can be adapted from very simple atomic models (stable atoms) to more complex isotopes. <b>See Related Materials</b> for background information by the same authors on the structure of the nucleus.

Introduces the object that contains almost all of the mass in the universe, the atomic nucleus. Antimatter, beta rays, fission and fusion, the structure of the atomic nucleus, how elements on the earth were produced, how we use the nucleus in every day life, and the effects of radiation in the environment are among the topics. The site includes nearly a dozen experiments that can be done in chemistry and physics classes, along with A Teacher's Guide to the Nuclear Science and Technology Wall Chart. (less)
