Calling all middle and high school homeschool students!

The EnergyExplorium in partnership with Duke Energy’s Young Generation in Nuclear (NA-YGN) and Women in Nuclear (WIN) would like to invite you to celebrate National Nuclear Science Week during our Nuclear Science Homeschooler Day on Friday, Oct. 24, 9:30 a.m. - noon.

Curious to know more about atoms and what's in them? How the fission process really works? What is a nuclear chain reaction? How is nuclear energy produced?

Be prepared to have your questions answered during an interactive presentation led by some of the brightest engineers from Duke Energy. The learning doesn't stop there, be prepared to take part in hands-on activities and ask our engineers some of your toughest questions during our Q&A session.

All participants will receive a packet of resources, activities and lesson plans on nuclear science.

Space is limited. Please RSVP by Oct. 18, by emailing or calling the EnergyExplorium, 980-875-5600. This event is open to the first 100 participants.
