STEM Pro Live! Palo Verde Nuclear Broadcast

Palo Verde Generating System sits in western Arizona, about 45 minutes outside of Phoenix. Oftentimes we drive past it but do we really know what they do inside?

We had a chance to talk to two engineers who work at this massive energy source and learned about the different things they do! Palo Verde is a fascinating place to work and you’ll learn about the processes that occur to supply millions with energy! You’ll also learn about the education and training that led these engineers to their jobs and how you can get there if you have an interest!
