The Canadian Encyclopedia: Nuclear Energy - How does nuclear energy work? This article covers introductions to nuclear fusion and fission, radioactivity, the history of nuclear energy in Canada and the potential future of this energy source.

Educapoles.org: Nuclear energy: when atoms explode - "Nuclear energy, which is also called atomic energy, is the form of energy that binds together the constituents of the nucleus of an atom. This energy can be released, mainly in the form of heat, with the disintegration of unstable nuclei (Uranium 235 or Plutonium 239, for example).Uranium is a radioactive...

Nuclear Regulatory Commission: Students Corner - Students can find some great information, including diagrams on this U.S. site. What is nuclear energy? Learn about the types of nuclear reactors, emergency planning, and radioactive waste.

Nuclear Fission - This short animation illustrates the process of nuclear fission that takes place when an atom of U235 is struck by a neutron with the right amount of energy.

Energy Kids: Uranium (Nuclear) - Get the basics about nuclear energy, nuclear power plants, types of nuclear reactors, and getting (producing) uranium, the fuel most widely used for nuclear plants. There are some diagrams and images included.

Atomic Interactions - "Explore the interactions between various combinations of two atoms. Turn on the force arrows to see either the total force acting on the atoms or the individual attractive and repulsive forces. Try the "Adjustable Attraction" atom to see how changing the parameters affects the interaction." [site]
