What do students know?


Please use this information to help you gain a better understanding of the nuclear industry. Link to the sources on the references page to further your knowledge even more. Our world is changing and more efficient means of energy production are in demand.

I chose this topic because I have strong ties to the nuclear industry. My father has worked in the nuclear field for the past 20 years. He is a Field Services Engineer and works on a refuel crew with a nuclear technologies company. He works all over the country and I have had the opportunity to visit him at power plants in Ohio, south Florida, Texas and South Carolina.

My interest in the nuclear power industry led me to complete an internship with Florida Power Corporation at the Crystal River Energy Complex in Crystal River, Florida. I worked in the corporate communications department and learned valuable knowledge about the industry, the company and basic communication concepts.

The main purpose of this site is for you to learn a little more about how the media and the nuclear industry interact. It is broken down into sections to make it easier for you to choose what you would like to learn about. Whether you are intersted in the background or the results, it can be readily found in the table of contents to the right. And if you have any questions or comments you can email me. Enjoy!
