List of international resources for students at or below high school level about nuclear energy topics. Some of the pages are written for specific age groups (e.g., 14-16 years), and these are clearly marked. The resources are all in English. Make sure you also check out our additional list of international resources International (Other) including resources from countries where English is not the predominantly spoken language. Most of these also offer a complete or partial English translation of their materials.

Worldmapper (UK)

Worldmapper (a collaborative project of the University of Sheffield, UK and the University of Michigan) is a collection of world maps, where territories are re-sized on each map according to the subject of interest. For details about the project, please visit their "About Worldmapper" page.
Among hundreds of available maps, we selected for you the "Nuclear Power" and "Nuclear Waste" maps. Each map comes with explanatory text, links to a PDF poster, data files and technical notes. Interesting resource for teachers.

:: "Nuclear Power": Territory size shows the proportion of worldwide nuclear electricity production that occurs there.

:: "Nuclear Waste"
: Territory size shows the proportion of all heavy metal nuclear waste produced by nuclear power stations worldwide that is produced there.

Control The Nuclear Power Plant (Sweden)

Website by a professor at Linköping University, Linköping, Sweden. It teaches visually about nuclear power plants, featuring an interactive diagram and a Java applet that allow visitors to simulate controlling the Chernobyl nuclear power plant.
You can pick a sequence to run, and when the sequence fails, try to stabilize the reactor. Before running the Applet, you should click on “Detailed Applet Description” and read about the power plant model and disaster control, so that you understand better what the schematic represents.
