The students participating in the Columbia County and Burke County High School High Tech Program toured Plant Vogtle in Waynesboro, Georgia on October 31. The students were given a tour of the facility and a presentation on nuclear energy by the Plant Vogtle staff. They were also given information about careers in nuclear energy as well as expectations of employers. The tour was very interactive with students asking a lot of questions about nuclear energy and career opportunities.
