Braidwood Station Employees Visit Lincoln-Way East Science Classes

 

​Braidwood Station recently had the opportunity to visit with Lincoln-Way East High School science students and advocate for the clean, reliable attributes of nuclear power.


More than 450 Lincoln-Way students in chemistry, honors chemistry and physical science classes heard Christian Peisker and Megan Holba’s presentation explaining how Braidwood Station produces enough electricity to power more than 2 million homes. The students had learned about nuclear power earlier in the school year, and asked excellent questions during the presentation.

Most students were surprised by facts showing the low radiological exposure of nuclear plant workers and those living near plants compared to radiation received naturally from:
Medical Procedures (over 1 Rem)
Radon (230 mRem per year)
Cosmic Radiation (30-80 mRem)
 
Thank you to Lincoln-Way High School for inviting us to speak about our passion – generating zero carbon, reliable power for the region.
