Dalton Nuclear Institute: Let’s Talk About Nuclear

Nuclear energy offers a low carbon and dependable flow of energy, whilst posing some highly complex challenges.
From radiochemistry to robotics, from microbiology to anthropology, researchers from across The University of Manchester work to address the major issues associated with nuclear power.

Meet our researchers to find out about the scientific, engineering and social challenges they are exploring.
What’s the deal with radiation? How is radioactive waste managed? How does a reactor work and how does living near one affect a community?

Try using a Geiger counter to find radiation, find out how radiation from nuclear waste is contained, and see how a nuclear power plant works – in Lego!
