Oyster Creek Employees Share their Pride and Knowledge with Students

 

 

Some 20 high school seniors, all Advanced Placement students from JP Stevens High School in Edison, NJ, got a hands-on lesson in nuclear power, recently when they visited the Oyster Creek Training Center.

Six Oyster Creek employees spent the day with the students, teaching them about the station and its role in the community, the environmental benefits of nuclear power and the importance of nuclear as part of our nation's energy mix. The students also learned about the many career possibilities that avail them in the commercial nuclear power industry.

But it wasn't just classroom time. The students got to try out scenarios in the center's Control Room Simulator, an exact replica of Oyster Creek's Main Control Room. And, they learned by practicing, how nuclear workers must follow every procedure step to a "t", even when donning and doffing protective clothing.

Oyster Creek often hosts school groups at its Training Center. To learn more, contact Site Communications Manager Suzanne D'Ambrosio at 609.971.2185.
