Smoke Detector Donations
Smoke detectors use radioactive material to sense when smoke is present. There is no radiation exposure to nearby people, pets, etc.
Over the past fourteen years, we have worked with more than 70 fire departments to donate more than 5700 smoke detectors to Idaho residents using nuclear science to save lives!
STEM in the Museum
900 students attended the STEM at the Museum event in Oct. 2019 where IANS helps to promote curiosity and interest in the sciences.
“It is all super fun...”
