Event description

Description

Free. PRE-REGISTRATION REQUIRED for specific time. 60 minute tours SATURDAY ONLY every 30 minutes from 10 a.m. to 3 p.m.

Discover one of Hamilton’s most unique yet least known industries – medical isotope research, development, and production – plus more more!

Check out the lobby exhibit on the university’s “neudose” team, about the satellite they are building to launch into space to understand the effects of different types of radiation on future space travellers. Also guess which items are or aren’t radioactive and then check the items with a Geiger counter!

Visitors – over 10 years of age, comfortable in confined space, and PRE-REGISTERED - upon presentation of government issued identification and completion of the visitor information card, proceed on a 1 hour guided tour of the reactor. Note McMaster Nuclear Reactor reserves right of refusal.
