It should be fairly self-evident that this category is for educating about nuclear and particle physics, from a physics teacher's or student's point of view. Educational materials of all types are welcome, especially those which explain this somewhat opaque subject in a clear way. Sites related to 'issues' surrounding nuclear energy should probably be put in 'Society/Issues.'
