Science Fair Exhibitors Visit Ginna Nuclear Power Plant

 


R.E. Ginna Nuclear Power Plant proudly sponsored a site visit for students and parents taking part in Rochester's inaugural Terra Rochester-Finger Lakes Science & Engineering Fair (TRFSEF). While the judges were evaluating projects on Sunday, March 18, parents and students boarded a bus for Ginna's training facility where they got a first-hand look at the control room simulator, learned about Exelon Generation's commitment to the environment and had fun measuring radiation found in everyday objects, like ceramic dishes.

Ginna employees eagerly volunteered their time to talk with the group, sharing their expertise and passion for nuclear energy. Supporting this event is just one of the ways Exelon Generation employees show their commitment to mentoring and motivating tomorrow's leaders with science, technology, engineering and math (STEM).

Terra Science and Education is a 501(c)(3) non-profit organization which dedicated to improving the quality of life through the support of those who are engaged in education and innovation. It was founded in 2011 for the improvement of K–16 education through consulting, scholarships, research and public forums.
