Understanding the correlation between knowledge and opinion is the focus of a nuclear technology curriculum unit field test carried out in the Lancaster Middle School. A 64-student eighth grade study group was surveyed both before and after an intensive, five-week course in nuclear technology to determine if changes in opinion can be linked to the increase of topical knowledge. The Myers-Briggs Type Indicator (MBTI) was used to see if the unit was equally received by students with a broad spectrum of learning styles. Post-unit "retention" testing was employed to determine the project's effectiveness when compared to science class performance evaluations (grades) earned prior to the start of the nuclear unit.
