2017 NE Facilities Guided Tours for Summer Interns

The Nuclear Engineering Division Outreach Committee is offering guided tours of some of the NE Division facilities for summer students. Each tour will last about 45 minutes to one hour. These tours offer the opportunity to see and learn about some unique experimental facilities which are part of the NE Division’s research in the nuclear energy field. You may sign up for as many of the tours as you wish.
Target Audience: Summer Students in NE or other Argonne Divisions.

Scheduled Tours

Additional tours will be added here as soon as they are confirmed. Stay tuned.

  • Nuclear Energy Discover Center in Bldg. 208 (A)
    Target Audience: for students without a nuclear energy/nuclear engineering background
    WHEN: June 15, 2017 at 2:00 pm
    Meeting Point: at the exhibit, which is located in Bldg. 208, room B102, in the front hallway on the first floor. From the lobby of the front entrance to 208, turn left ito the hallway and follow the hallway west. B102 is on the right, at the end of the hallway (just past the vending machines). Need a Map?

    The Nuclear Energy Discovery Center showcases Argonne's rich heritage in the development of nuclear reactors and its current role in the development of next-generation reactors and fuel cycle technologies. Argonne has over 70 years of leadership in nuclear science and technology, tracing its birth to Enrico Fermi’s work in the Manhattan Project. Argonne pioneered the development of peaceful uses of nuclear technology, including those used in major nuclear power plants throughout the world. The laboratory continues to advance the design and operation of nuclear energy systems and is applying its nuclear energy-related expertise to current and emerging programs of national and international significance. Visitors to the Center will learn about the development of nuclear power generation, from the Manhattan Project to Argonne’s physics and engineering experiments and analyses that paved the way for naval reactors and today’s commercial nuclear power reactors, and then on to the advanced reactor systems and other nuclear technologies that are the focus of modern-day research and development at Argonne and around the world.

    More information HELP! I don't have the required background but I would like to attend anyway...
    You can prepare for the Tour by paying a visit to the NE @ the Argonne Energy Showcase page of the NE website; there you will find links to essential and concise information about Nuclear Energy. Check also our Nuclear Energy Learning Resources web site for an extensive list of websites and resources to learn about nuclear energy.
