Fusion Focused Activities:

  • The Tokamak (Augment Reality App Lesson) - This lesson allows students to breakdown a nuclear fusion reaction into smaller components and better understand how nuclear fusion creates energy - all while using a really cool augmented reality app. It is like Pokemon Go for fusion.
  • Fusion Career Profiles Matching Tool - This tool can be used for any level. It matches students to relevant fusion energy/plasma scientists’ profiles based on their interests and values. They can then research, create their own profiles, and discuss with the class. Encourage your students to take this interactive Career Matching Survey to see what fusion energy/plasma science careers fit them best.
