BUSTOS ESPINOZA, R. O. E et al. State and trend of the Nuclear Education in the Plurinational State of Bolivia. Revista Boliviana de Física [online]. 2017, vol.30, n.30, pp. 31-55. ISSN 1562-3823.

Bolivias National Nuclear Program has as its objective to promote, manage, and implement the pacific use of nuclear technology in Bolivia, as well as, to bring up to date and support the countrys industrial, scientific, technological and academic sectors. The Plurinational State of Bolivia has put in place the construction and implementation of the Bolivian Research and Development Center for Nuclear Technology under the administration of The Bolivian Agency for Nuclear Energy (ABEN). This project will also involve the Bolivian Institute of Nuclear Science and Technology (IBTEN) which will oversee the construction and operation of the Nuclear Center. Within this context Bolivian universities are stepping up research, both experimental and theoretical, as well as, strengthening existing training programs related to nuclear science and technology. Academics in coordination with the Ministry of Education have been promoting and implementing programs that strengthen studies in the field of nuclear physics through activities such as the Bolivian Physics Olympics and the Bolivian Astronomy and Astrophysics Olympics. In addition the Physics Department of UMSA implements a Physics Diploma program for school teachers. The program seeks to update teachers in disciplines, such as, physics, astronomy, astrophysics and also biology, chemistry, mathematics, social sciences, amongst others within the Bolivian education system.

Keywords : Education; Course design and evaluation; Radiation monitoring, control, and safety.
