Nuclear Energy Worksheets

Nuclear energy is released from splitting atoms. The immense amount of energy giving off from that process is then harnessed in a nuclear reactor to heat water and create steam. This steam is then focused on a turbine that in turn rotates and generates electricity. In the U.S. approximately twenty percent of our electricity comes from nuclear power. The country of France’s power grid relies entirely on nuclear power. These worksheets explore how nuclear energy works and how humans take benefit from it.
