On Friday, April 1st, Wrightsboro Elementary, in Wilmington, NC, held a Career Day for their fourth and fifth grade students. Along with various other Wilmington companies, GE Hitachi NAYGN volunteers hosted a booth describing STEM careers at GE Hitachi. For these young students, career day was an opportunity to practice how to greet people, introduce oneself, shake hands, be polite, and say thank you. Volunteers also got the opportunity to teach the students about nuclear energy.
Below, Scott Pfeffer is teaching students about how radiation is everywhere through an interactive demonstration using the Geiger counter while Doug Kondrack explains to students how much energy a single nuclear fuel pellet can hold!
Thank you to all of the volunteers!
