Nuclear Science Advocacy

Project by Polygence alum Taya

Nuclear Science Advocacy

Project's result

My outcome was a successful blog website and LinkedIn page that promotes nuclear science and discusses world issues related to nuclear.

They started it from zero. Are you ready to level up with us?


My project is a blog and experiment portfolio that details digestible nuclear science information that helps break down its stigma. My first experiment documented is turning a condenser microphone into an alpha radiation detector.

Hello, my name is Taya Martinez, and I am a high school student in North Texas. I am passionate about nuclear science, and I want to share my passion with others by breaking down the stigma of how we view crucial climate and energy crisis solutions like nuclear energy. My project is creating and sharing a blog and small research portfolio for accessible nuclear experiments and applications at home.
