A Message from the National Steering Chair:
Nuclear Science Week (NSW) has become a grass-roots community programming opportunity to engage in STEM learning, career interest and discernment, and to just learn more about the important positive impact that nuclear science has on the world. Whether you are interested in energy technology, global climate impact, research into new materials, energy production, medical processes, or education, Nuclear Science Week is a chance to focus on the topic of nuclear and learn more.
In celebration of Nuclear Science Week, SCE&G put a spotlight on nuclear careers with student tours of V.C. Summer Units 2 and 3 and the North American Young Generation in Nuclear High School Blitz. Read more here!
