BCHS ECOLOGY STUDENTS TOUR VOGTLE

A group of Burke County High Schools students had a chance to see their science lessons in action at Plant Vogtle. Alisa Matanane Ingwersen’s Ecology/STEM class visited Plant Vogtle for a tour of the two nuclear units in operation and the construction site where they are building Units 3 and 4. The students also performed a chlorine water test in the chemistry lab at Vogtle’s training center. “The purpose of their visit was to expose my students to STEM (Science, Technology, Engineering and Mathematics) related careers, as well as discuss application of water quality testing and freshwater use,” Ingwersen explained. Above, students on the tour were, from left, front row: Briannia Lewis, Lanie Newman and Shelby Duffy; and back row: Kaleb Tobat, Madison Saxon, Eli Osborne, Ian Phillips, Moses Jones and Janell Williams.
