Please join us for a unique scientific experience with a tour of the Maryland University Training Reactor (MUTR), one of only a few pool-type nuclear reactors in the country. Initially built in 1960, the MUTR is a 250 kW TRIGA (Training, Research, Isotope General Atomic) reactor that, as the acronym suggests, is currently being used in research and to train undergraduate and graduate students at the University of Maryland in the operation of and science behind nuclear reactors. The tour will cover more of the history of the reactor, a little of the science behind a nuclear reactor, and the MUTR’s layout and operation. After the tour, please join us for an informal lunch in the College Park area.

Please note: Due to the nature of this facility, registrants will be asked to fill out a security form prior to attending. As such, the registration deadline has been set up to allow for the completion and submission of this form. The form will be sent following the close of the registration period. If you have any questions concerning this please email the event contact.
