Dear all,

We are developing a roundtable for the upcoming ASEH 2019 conference (Columbus, OH, April 10-14, 2019) that examines the teaching of Water History.  Due to its centrality to life and its dynamic properties, water presents both challenges and opportunities as a subject in the classroom.  We seek fellow panelists to contribute to a discussion of teaching method and pedagogy related to the study of water, with a focus on undergraduate teaching.  Specialists in any part of the world, or any time period, are encouraged to apply.

Atomic Age Catholics

In the fall of 1957, an AGN-201 nuclear training reactor was installed on the Catholic University campus. Originally located in the Nuclear Training Laboratory of the campus Power Plant, this reactor was a compact unit standing nine feet tall and weighing 12 tons. Capable of producing 100 milliwatts of energy – only enough to light a single Christmas tree bulb! – the unit was not intended for powering campus offices but providing a controlled model to train budding nuclear engineers, power plant operators, and faculty researchers.
