Page 74 - Laboratory in a collaborative science education program impacting the Hispanic and Native American populations, with another initiative expected in New Mexico using DOE facilities there. The FY 1991 University and Science Education program will continue to provide support for refueling and related activities for university nuclear research and training reactors. The R&D Laboratory Technology Transfer program, which supports DOE laboratory efforts to spin off new technology to US industry and universities,...
Page 72 - Education Action Conference in Berkeley, California. Over 200 senior representatives from Federal agencies, Congress, education associations, States, industry, and the National Laboratories met in working groups to formulate the outline of an action plan to improve science education dramatically by the year 2007. The...
Page 156 - Mr. Chairman and members of the Subcommittee: I am grateful for this opportunity to appear before you today.
Page 70 - UNIVERSITY AND SCIENCE EDUCATION There is a growing consensus that one of the most serious problems facing the Nation over the next ten years is the declining number of young Americans, including women and minorities, interested in pursuing careers in science and engineering. Those who are interested often receive inadequate preparation for such careers.
Page 66 - Geosciences, the research emphasizes the development of a predictive understanding of the energy-related aspects of geological, geophysical, and geochemical process related to the Earth. Emphasis in FY 1991 will be on high-resolution underground imaging related to enhanced oil recovery and waste management, as well as on continental scientific drilling. In the latter area, site studies to investigate existing geological structures will be carried out at Katmai, Alaska where drilling is scheduled...
Page 171 - National Academy of Sciences entitled University Research Reactors in the United States-their Role and Value, examines the role of URRs in the areas of research, education, and service, especially in light of the decreasing numbers of reactors. The report concludes...
Page 53 - The 6-7 GeV project is a new, hard x-ray synchrotron light source which has been rated as the top priority by several scientific panels, including one from the National Academy of Sciences. It will provide brilliant x-ray beams that will serve...
Page 177 - Policies that will limit closures and encourage modernization of a substantial subset of existing reactors, sufficient in numbers and types to meet national and academic needs for research, education and service are clearly in the national interest...
Page 67 - FY 1991 is $37. 0 million. These funds will ensure that BES-supported researchers will continue to have the equipment needed to initiate and continue advanced research, much of which involves experiments at extremes of temperature and pressure. Reliable, precise measurements under these conditions challenge the current state-of-the-art. Replacements and new equipment funded under this request, which are important to the continued success of the program, include such items...
Page 65 - FY 1991 request will continue fundamental engineering research with emphasis on topics important for energy production and use, as well as those meeting the Department's longterm objectives for restoration of the environment. Such topics include flow of oil, gas, and water through porous materials such as soil and rocks and two phase flow in energy systems--for instance, mixtures of water and steam in nuclear reactors.
