Dear Colleagues, Partners, Former Students, and Friends,
The reactor at the Texas A&M University Nuclear Science Center (NSC) is celebrating its 60th Anniversary as it was first taken critical on December 18, 1961. The NSC staff want to start planning for a series of activities, events, competitions, and programs starting in August and leading up to December. Understanding the NSC has been part of numerous collaborations, training, partnerships, projects, and education programs over the past six decades, we want to extend a sincere invitation to you all in actively participating in our celebrations.
If you, and/or anyone you know with interest, would like to engage in some way, by sharing a memory, reflection, picture, or anything else, we would appreciate hearing from you. We will highlight our collaborators in this endeavor on our platforms and communications leading up to our celebration.
The NSC is the parent organization with a reactor operations division and an outreach & education division; NPI is part of the outreach & education division. The NSC was renamed the Nuclear Engineering & Science Center (NESC) in 2019. We are currently rebranding all NSC materials, information, and logos to reflect the new NESC name.
