The submitted proposal primarily consists of a curriculum development of radiochemistry
education course namely Laboratory Experiments in Applied Nuclear and
Radiochemistry. The curriculum will complement theory learned in Chem 405/Nuc E 405
Nuclear and Radiochemistry and provide hands-on experimental learning to students.
For the proposed curriculum, approximately ten experiments are planned.
The proposed project will further improve nuclear education infrastructure at Penn State
and provide subject matter expertise to nuclear engineering, chemistry and other
students via hands-on experimentation in safe, secure, and environmentally sound
handling of radioactive materials. Each subject matter planned for this course will be
developed as stand-alone modules and will also be used to train other students from
other institutions via a radiochemistry summer laboratory course. A subject matter
expertise and skills in experimental nuclear and radiochemistry will dramatically increase
the success of the PSU radiochemistry program and will benefit our graduates in serving
at national laboratories, governmental agencies, academia, and corporations.
