The primary goal of the Oregon nuclear age education curriculum is to develop in students the knowledge and skills needed to meet the challenges of living in a nuclear age. This curriculum is developed around five general themes, each corresponding to a specific unit.

The Nuclear Age: A Curriculum Guide for Secondary Schools. Ground Zero, Washington, DC.

This book details the history of the nuclear age, from the discovery of nuclear fission and the Manhattan Project to the Cuban missile crisis and the use of nuc Teachers Lessons and Ideas. Since nuclear age education is broad-based and builds upon existing curricula, 1t is designed to be appropriate for students in grades K Three addi- tional points support the use of the curriculum at all age levels.
