Abstract Title: Using the Fukushima disaster as a teaching tool
Abstract: The 9.0 earthquake, tsunami and its consequences will influence global acceptance of nuclear energy. It also provides an opportunity for physics teachers to connect the science to the social reaction. This is also an opportunity to help students understand the distinction between radiation and radioactivity.
