Highschool pupils & teachers
Once you’ve crossed the entrance gate of our site, you will find a lot to be discovered: pioneering research, innovative technologies and unique facilities. We do not want to keep all these beautiful things hidden and love to immerse students into the fascinating world of nuclear science and technology.
The SCK CEN Academy contributes to many outreach activities, STEM projects and science contests. Do you want to involve researchers from SCK CEN in your next project? Please contact us.
For general information on radioactivity, radioactive waste and nuclear energy, please refer to the BNS publication "Understanding Nuclear Energy" (only in NL or FR), the NIRAS webpage on radioactive waste (only in NL or FR) or the UNEP publication "Radiation: effects and sources".
As part of our continuous professional development programme, the SCK CEN Academy organises lectures and technical visits adapted to secondary school teachers.
Furthermore, we gladly share educational material about the various research domains in which SCK CEN is active. For general information about radioactivity and nuclear energy, please consult the BNS publication 'better understanding of nuclear energy' (in NL or FR), the NIRAS-ONDRAF webpage on nuclear waste (in NL or FR) or the UNEP publication 'Radiation: effects and sources'.
