Outreach Materials Request

Outreach Materials Request

The Center for Nuclear Science and Technology Information is an initiative of ANS working to increase understanding of and support for nuclear science and technology. ANS members play an important role in changing the conversation about nuclear.

To assist members with their outreach efforts, ANS offers in-kind public outreach materials to a limited number of ANS student and local sections that host outreach events aligned with ANS public information goals. Requests that meet the selection criteria are fulfilled on a first come, first served basis.

Nuclear Science Week

Nuclear Science Week

Nuclear Science Week, is a week-long celebration focusing local, regional, national and international interest on all aspects of nuclear science. NSW takes place each year on the third week of October, and each day of NSW provides for learning about the contributions, innovations and opportunities that can be found by exploring nuclear science.

Nuclear Science Week is an ideal time to host outreach events in your local communities. To encourage participation, ANS offers financial assistance to sections planning events that coincide with NSW. Up to $1,500 will be distributed to help sections begin new Nuclear Science Week outreach activities. There is a $1,000 maximum grant request; there is no minimum request amount. These grants do not limit any section’s ability to apply for and receive in-kind donations of outreach materials for National Science Week or other events.
