Education and Public Outreach

Representatives of CNS Manitoba have spoken at several schools in Eastern Manitoba and Winnipeg, as well as the University of Manitoba.   A speaker also presented at the 1997 Science Teachers' Association of Manitoba conference.   The Manitoba Branch of the Canadian Nuclear Society has a number of resources available to schools and public organizations (churches, service clubs, libraries, scouts & guides, etc.).   We are able to:

  1. provide qualified speakers who can demonstrate a Geiger counter, radioactive sources, simulated fuel bundles, cloud chambers, and a model reactor,
  2. give out copies of handouts and pamphlets on a variety of nuclear-related topics,
  3. loan videos and copies of Saskatchewan Education’s "Nuclear Physics" CD-ROM, and
  4. provide contacts for research projects.
