Nuclear Science Week at Reed-Custer

 

Tim Gardner talks to students about working at Braidwood Station and the advantages of nuclear power vs. other forms of energy.

Braidwood and Dresden employees educated hundreds of high school students about the benefits of nuclear power at a career fair at Reed-Custer High School in Braidwood. 

Both stations handed out trinkets, candy and Nuclear Science Week facts about Illinois nuclear plants during the event. Several Braidwood and Dresden employees also spoke to classes about why they should consider a future career in nuclear.

"The students were eager to learn more about our plants which allowed us to tell them about the many great economic and environmental benefits of nuclear," said Tim Gardner, Braidwood Station employee.

While dozens of other local employers staffed booths at the event, the candy and trinkets helped keep the two Exelon tables hopping throughout the three-hour fair. Congratulations to both stations for making a positive impact at this community event!
