Meet the Explorer
Featured throughout the new Algebra 1, Geometry, and Algebra 2 program, National Geographic Explorers help students and teachers make STEM connections to the real world.
Dr. Leslie Dewan believes that nuclear energy is a powerful tool to combat climate change. She has updated the design of the molten-salt reactor to keep its safety features and lower the cost of generating electricity. She hopes that this design can be used to generate electricity that is both carbon-free and cheaper than electricity generated from coal.
In this chapter's Performance Task students will discover what methods are used to generate electricity and investigate how the number of operable nuclear reactors has grown over time.
