Ginna Invests Time in STEM Education

 

R.E. Ginna Nuclear Power Plant's North American Young Generation in Nuclear (NAYGN) is partnering with schools and youth organizations to provide mentors, resources and education support. NAYGN members John Scalzo, Chris Liess and Matt Schreiber talked with Sodus Intermediate School students participating in the 21st Century Community Learning Center after-school program about how we use electricity, methods for generating emission-free energy and how nuclear power is produced at Ginna.   

"There was a lot of excitement from the presenters, students and staff. The students were very engaged and asked great questions," said John Scalzo, an engineer at Ginna. "Investing time in our youth is essential to fostering a diverse, innovative workforce. We look forward to working with more area schools in the future."

Tomorrow's energy jobs demand we engage students in strengthening science, technology, engineering and math (STEM) education, opening doors to energy industry careers. According to the National Center for College and Career Transitions, about 20 percent of careers - in fact, many of the fastest growing ones - require proficiency in STEM.

For more information on hosting a presentation at your school or organization, please contact Maria Hudson, Ginna Nuclear Power Plant Communications, at maria.hudson@exeloncorp.com or 315-791-5221.
