Is Fission the Energy Source of the Future?
The Alpha, Beta, and Gamma of Radiation This interactive resource from The Learning Federation simulates a radiation laboratory and allows students to explore the measurement of radiation from a range of isotopes. Students can choose an isotope, select a type of barrier, set the distance of the Geiger counter, and then record the amount of alpha, beta, and gamma radiation. Using the resource, students are able to test absorption effects of various materials on the radiation emission levels. Glossary terms, background information, and challenges to test and extend the student’s knowledge are also included.
Fission Control This interactive resource from The Learning Federation allows students to explore the conditions that produce the greatest amount of electricity in a simulated nuclear reactor. Students choose materials for the control rods and a coolant for the reactor core; they then manipulate the control rod levels and the coolant flow rate to test the effects. Glossary terms, background information, and challenges to test and extend the student's knowledge are also included

Okotoks-Moving Toward Sustainable Development
SEEDS Energy Literacy Series The SEEDS Energy Literacy Series explores ten energy sources -- their uses, technologies, and associated issues. “Virtual Tours” use pictures and an interactive map of Canada to take you to sites where energy is obtained and produced. Graphics and animations show energy technologies in use. Issues, impacts, and outcomes examine some of the scientific, technological, societal, environmental, economic, and political issues associated with the energies.
