Hearing from Our Members
Durham’s chapter was invited to exhibit at an open house celebrating nuclear trade careers in the Darlington area, with over 200 9th grade students learning about skilled trade opportunities, accessing the OPG nuclear reactor mock-up, and touring the Darlington power station via bus. What’s more, over 1,800 members of the public came by on Day 2 and were able to see the CANDU reactor mock-up, talk to NAYGNers, and even check out Marie’s Electric Adventure.
