Radiation Control Education
Visit the U.S. Environmental Protection Agency’s student-focused radiation website, RadTown. This interactive, virtual community provides information for students and teachers about different radiation sources. RadTown also provides Radiation Education Activities for middle and high school students (grades 6-12). Radiation Education Activities includes lesson plans covering radiation basics, sources of radiation, radiation protection, exposure versus contamination, radon, and more.
Also, you can check out the Health Physics Society’s webpage for teachers. Here you will find information on the following: basic reference materials concerning radiation, fact sheets that explain radiation-related topics of current interest, demonstrations and classroom activities, lesson plans, careers in radiation safety, and radiation measurement instrumentation.
The Health Physics Society sponsors an additional website that is dedicated to public education. Radiation Answers contains objective, scientific information about radiation in a friendly, easy-to-read format.
