Curriculum Development for Radiochemistry Education Program at Pennsylvania State University

Project: Research project

Project Details


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.
