Learning Goals

  1. Allow students to perform various experiments using the Nuclear Reactor and obtain data for further analysis
  2. Walk around the FNR control room and reactor floor, look down at the reactor core, view instrument panels, and interact with the control panel. 
  3. Provide high fidelity simulated results of field quantities so that students can understand the temperature and flux distributions of the reactor
