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.
