Nuclear engineering sounds really cool, right? It certainly is and anyone can learn about it. Basically, it’s a branch of engineering that studies the break down (fission) and combining (fusion) of atomic particles. In other words, nuclear engineers study how atoms work together. Sometimes they play nice (giving us electricity) and sometimes they don’t (weapons of war). Hear about all of this on an introductory level, specifically how nuclear power plants work and radiation is a part of our daily lives. Use a Geiger counter to measure the radiation in household products.
