Nuclear Fusion: Energy of the FutureLesson Planet
10 mins 9th - 12th
Around 80 percent of the world's energy demands are currently met by fossil fuels. Nuclear fusion is being explored as a possible renewable energy source for the future. Acquaint your advanced physics learners with the process of nuclear...
How the Sun Works: Fusion and Quantum TunnelingLesson Planet
1 min 9th - 12th
There may be nothing new under the sun, but astrophysicists constantly are learning new things about the sun! In this minute-long clip, learn the physics of fusion in the sun and the possibility that quantum tunneling is happening...
Nuclear Reactions: Fission and FusionLesson Planet
9th - 12th
These nicely designed slides work through the processes of nucelar fission and fusion with very clear, labeled diagrams that almost act as animations when you progress from slide to slide. Facts behind the process are summarized well....
Fusion Power Explained—Future or FailureLesson Planet
6 mins 9th - Higher Ed CCSS: Adaptable
A day without fusion is like a day without sunshine. The video explains what fusion is and how we might be able to create the energy on Earth rather than relying on the sun. It highlights the pros and cons of fusion power.
Nuclear Chemistry ProjectLesson Planet
4 mins 9th - 12th CCSS: Adaptable
Radiation has numerous real-world applications, some of which are relatively safe while others can be extremely hazardous. In this nuclear chemistry project, young scientists choose a practical use of nuclear reactions to research in...
Nuclear Energy: Is Fission the Future?Lesson Planet
4 mins 6th - 10th CCSS: Adaptable
Nuclear energy powers the Mars rovers as well as provides energy in more than 30 countries around the world. While some believe nuclear energy is the future of energy production, others worry about the risk factors and radioactive waste....
Exploring Nuclear EnergyLesson Planet
9th - 12th CCSS: Adaptable
Every 18–24 months, nuclear power plants shut down to remove their used uranium fuel, a radioactive waste. Show learners how energy is made and used around the world and then focus on the United States' usage. Viewers then specifically...
WS 6.1 Nuclear Particles and ReactionsLesson Planet
10th - 12th
In this nuclear chemistry worksheet, students define radioactivity and the types of nuclear reactions. They label nuclear reactions with one of five types of reactions including fusion, fission, induced, natural decay or electron capture.
