Funny/Cool Names for Nuclear Event

  1. Nov 3, 2012 #1

    I'm new to posting on this forum, but i've been reading posts on here for a while :)

    Next weekend i am hosting an event to teach middle school kids about the field of Nuclear. I cover Radiation, Basic Atomic Structure, Fission, Fusion, fun jobs in Nuclear, ext.

    I need a fun name to post this class on the wall, can anyone think of any?

    I'm in competition with other university organizations and the past 3 events the name was listed as "Detecting radiation in every day life".... Sadly this always ends up with a whopping 2 kids in my class while others have 40+ lol

    You need to strike a balance between what you want to teach and what they want to hear about and use the latter to leverage the former.

    Nuclear Spongebob (or similar mascot) and have cutouts of Spingebob posing with atoms, fusing them, etc.

    I don think it needs to be an especially clever name, just use a theme that they're into and imbed everything into that theme.

    Exploding stars, erupting volcanoes, and the deadliest force in nature

    How did all the best superheroes get their power?

    Controlling the universe through powerful forces

    Whats the strongest and weakest forces in nature (the strong and weak force).

    ... or other things of that nature. They are all loosely accurate but I think kids want danger, excitement, powerful sounding things.

    Gravity is the weakest force.
