Last week the Nuclear Science Week (NSW) National Steering Committee released its impact report from the 2015 event, detailing the many ways people were educated about all things nuclear as a result of the event.

Nuclear Science Week is an international weeklong celebration to focus interest on learning “about the important positive impact that nuclear science has on the world,” NSW’s National Steering Chair James Walther said.

Organizers hope to get community members interested in STEM education by using the available resources or by hosting local events.

Celebrated the third week of October, NSW grass-roots community programming all over the nation and one “Big Event” hosted in a different city each year help spread learning and career interest in STEM fields to affect national security, energy, medical research, and new technology.

The request for proposal (RFP) for hosting the national event for NSW 2016 is on the NSW website. The community chosen to host the national event will benefit from notoriety, international visibility, networking, and outreach opportunities, according to the RFP.
