Nuclear Science Week is a broadly observed, week-long celebration to focus interest on all aspects of nuclear science and will take place October 19-23, 2015. The Department of Physics at the University of Regina will be participating in this event and is planning on having a pair of short public talks on October 20, at 7pm in Lecture Theatre RIC 119.

The prominence the province of Saskatchewan has placed on nuclear research, both in financial terms with the sale of yellow cake uranium and investment with both University's partnering with the Sylvia Fedoruk Canadian Centre for Nuclear Innovation to place more emphasis on research in nuclear imaging can not be understated. That is why we feel it is important to take part in Nuclear Science Week and invite the public to hear our researchers talk about fundamental and applied nuclear research, debunk some myths, and further educate on what is being developed now and in the future.
