As a result of operating a model school that consists of total 13 sessions and analyzing behavior changes, the ultimate goal, based on the traditional learning model, it was found that all of elementary, middle and high school students showed high acceptance toward nuclear power in South Korea. To reduce unnecessary social confusion related to nuclear power generation and use of radiation, it is necessary to make thorough preparations in the long run and operate the model school verified in this study at the national level.
