Education and Outreach

Education is an important part of the mission of the NRL. The NRL supports The Ohio State University Nuclear Engineering Program by implementing lab sessions at the Reactor Building for two graduate-level classes and one undergraduate-level class. In addition to the laboratory support provided to the nuclear engineering graduate program at The Ohio State University, NRL facilities are used by a variety of students and educators. Activities include basic reactor experiments such as approach to critical and control rod calibration, neutron activation analysis demonstrations, and radiation safety training.

The NRL hosts a limited number of tour groups each year to support university academic groups and advanced high school STEM groups in the central Ohio area. Tour groups learn about the reactor and the control room, and observe a neutron-activation demo.
