We'd like to introduce our new NRC eLearning initiative to help parents who may suddenly have children out of school – and for adults who would like to know a bit more about science, nuclear technology and the NRC. Once a week, we'll highlight content on our website and YouTube channel, including history videos, games and a series on basic science principles relevant to the NRC.
