Braidwood Station recently made a generous donation to the Minooka High School Underwater Robotics Club for students to add a remote temperature monitor to their robotic submarine. Thisprogram helps students cultivate STEM skills and provides them the opportunity to build and apply their skills as they engineer complex ROVs for increasingly complex tasks. 

Solving problems, working with people, and helping the world

Exelon Generation Senior Training Instructor Mark Rasmussen came to Byron Station in 1982 to help with the initial startup of the plant's two nuclear units. Thirty-five years later, Mark's daughter Suzy is busy with a nuclear startup project of her own – working as a Mechanical Field Engineer for Southern Co. on the new Vogtle Units 3 and 4.
 
"I think while we are moving towards a future where there are more females in tech and science careers, we are not where we need to be yet," Suzy said. "I volunteer so much because I want to show young women that having a career in STEM is more than beakers, lab coats and chalkboards. It's solving problems, working with people, and helping the world."
