List of international resources for students at or below high school level about nuclear energy topics. The resources are available in foreign languages (the availability per language is noted, case by case). Mostly a complete or partial English translation is also available; if this is the case, a link to the English translation is also provided. Some of the pages are written for specific age groups (e.g., 14-16 years), and these are clearly marked.
