published by the Lawrence Berkeley National Laboratory
written by Victor Noto
Produced by the Lawrence Berkeley National Laboratory, the ABC's of Nuclear Science site gives students a good general overview of nuclear science. Through descriptions and illustrations, students  explore nuclear structure; radioactivity; alpha, beta, and gamma decay; half-life; reactions; fusion; fission; cosmic rays; and antimatter.  Included is a comprehensive activity on how to build a cosmic ray detector with detailed lab manual and procedurals, plus nine shorter experiments on topics related to nuclear science.
