Nuclear Threat Initiative

The Nuclear Threat Initiative (NTI) works to strengthen global security by reducing the risk of use and preventing the spread of nuclear, biological and chemical weapons. NTI pushes the envelope of traditional thinking within global bureaucracies and expert communities and stimulates new ways to address threats from weapons of mass destruction.

The Challenge

portfolio-NTINTI created a series of educational tutorials to educate students, young professionals and media and other people in the field to build a basic understanding of issues impacting the field. NTI wanted to make these tutorials available online for its audiences and the general public to access from anywhere on any device.

The Solution

Matrix Group collaborated with NTI on the online tutorial series, creating a series of interactive tools to educate visitors on the issues. This included:

  • An interactive map that shows which countries are part of the Non Proliferation Treaty, Comprehensive Nuclear-Test-Ban Treaty, and the many other treaties.
  • A timeline that takes visitors through a brief history of the events leading up to, and resulting from, the negotiation of the Non-Proliferation Treaty (NPT).
  • A glossary, quizzes and more

The website also features an introductory video that walks through the tutorials and all their features.portfolio-NTI-


portfolio-NTI-2Since its launch, the website has served as a powerful vehicle for educating audiences on issues regarding nuclear, biological and chemical weapons.  NTI is continually adding more tutorials.


  • “The site meets our goals to create a set of friendly, engaging learning tools. We are able to add new modules on our own through the existing content management system, which creates efficiencies and flexibility as we expand. Working with Matrix has been great. They’ve been dedicated to our success.”
