Outreach and Recruiting
Students with Radiation Detection Kit
Outreach and recruiting are core initiatives of NPI. With some
of the new nuclear power plants scheduled to be operational by 2017
and the impending retirements at current power plants, an educated
and trained workforce is a priority for the nuclear power industry.
NPI developed an aggressive outreach and recruiting program for
middle and high schools to keep students interested in the academic
tracks that can lead to a career in the nuclear industry. Elements
of the outreach and recruiting program include visits from NPI
academic and industry partners to classrooms at intermediate and
high schools, attendance by partners at career days, and
institutionalizing initiatives at high schools that encourage
students to remain interested in STEM careers. To schedule a visit
to your middle or high school, or to schedule a visit to a partner
school, go to the Contact page.
