Bruce Power and the Nuclear Innovation Institute have partnered up to offer some unique student programming opportunities.
Students in Bruce, Grey and Huron counties will have the opportunity to experiment, create, discover and learn on a new online portal called “NII Explore”, which is a new platform allowing students to access many different aspects of the nuclear industry.
Bruce Power recently announced the closure of the visitor’s centre until March of 2021 due to COVID-19, and the centre typically provides students with school programs, tours, exhibits and resources on issues ranging from nuclear energy, medical isotopes and environmental awareness. Some of those programs will now be accessible on NII Explore.
“Bruce Power is pleased to work with NII to help ensure that we can continue to engage our community, residents and students in Bruce, Grey and Huron, and beyond, while the Visitors’ Centre remains closed for updates,” says James Scongack, EVP, Corporate Affairs and Operational Services at Bruce Power. “There are great synergies between NII’s programs and those that Bruce Power wants to deliver to its community.”
“Encouraging active inquiry in school-aged children in our region is a key part of our mandate,” adds NII President Bruce Wallace. “Our partnership with Bruce Power gives NII Explore additional tools to deliver on this promise.”
