notification will be sent by March 31, 2017.

 Short description:

Blending classwork and labwork, participants in our school will learn  
the physics of nuclear structure, radioactive decay and nuclear  
reactions, principles of radiodetection, chemistry of actinides and  
fission products, radiolysis, production and separation of  
radionuclides. The nuclear fuel cycle will be presented from  
fundamental chemistry to engineering applications.

Students will benefit from the expertise of our guest lecturers  
invited from the DOE national labs and collaborating university  
partners, and work on their  independent research projects under  
faculty guidance and present their results at a student conference at  
the end of the summer school.

Students will also tour Hanford Site, AREVA and  Energy Northwest  
facilities in Richland, Washington, and the Oregon State TRIGA  
Research Reactor in Corvallis.

In addition, student will be guided about their future career options  
field in this field and application for  a university graduate program  
in nuclear and radiochemistry in the U.S.

FrogTutoring is an educational technology platform that  

facilitate 1-on-1 private tutoring offering the full range of academic  

courses and test prep in your area. Our company has been featured on  

CNN and other media outlets.

We’re looking to hire some of your students to work not just as tutors  

but also as mentors to students throughout your community and  

surrounding cities. We have found that when students (K - 12 &  

College) are tutored by college students, they become more receptive  

and enthusiastic about the subject. I think this will be a great  

opportunity for your students to encourage, engage as well give great  

advice as to what to expect in college to local youth, ALL while  

enhancing their resume.

Not only will your students tutor/mentor youth throughout your area,  

but they will receive great benefits as well!

Great pay- Minimum of $30 per session
