Nuclear Power for Kids

Nuclear Power

Nuclear energy is released during the splitting or fusing of atomic nuclei. The primary method to extract usable nuclear energy in use today is through controlled nuclear fission in atomic reactors. The heat produced in these reactors is used to drive steam turbines which in turn generate usable electricity.

Grade: 8 - 12
Lesson on nuclear power. Learn how a nuclear power generating station works.

How Nuclear Energy Works?
Grade: 8 - 12
Inner workings of a nuclear power plant, learn about fuel rods, nuclear waste and how electricity is generated from nuclear energy.

Energy from the Nucleus
Grade: 8 - 12
An informative video that explains fission-based nuclear energy generation.

Electrical Energy from Fission
Grade: 8 - 12
The presentation looks at the process of atomic fission, and how it's used to generate electricity.

Discovery of Radioactivity
Grade: 8 - 12
The video describes the discovery of radioactivity, and explains radiation.

Nuclear Reactions
Grade: 8 - 12
