Careers in Energy
Get your students excited about energy! The growing energy industry encompasses many fields, all of which need bright and innovative students to take future leadership roles. The Energy Providers Coalition for Education Web site answers questions about careers and functions at an electric utility.
For interactive learning, visit www.furryelephant.com to see how a nuclear power plant generates electricity, and view a simulation of radioactivity or a pressurized water reactor.
Encourage your students to learn more about electricity through the OPPD-sponsored Power Drive Program.
Invite an OPPD expert to talk to your class about the energy industry, green initiatives, and career opportunities. Contact the speakers bureau to schedule.
