2017 Young Investigators’ Summer Program in Nuclear Engineering Concluding

Students taking part in a field trip

Each summer NC State’s Nuclear Engineering hosts high school rising junior and senior students for a three-week residential program. This year students from North Carolina, Illinois, Minnesota, New York, Virginia and Washington took part in lectures, labs, group projects and industrial field trips. It was an opportunity for pre-college students to explore university life, material on nuclear science and technology as well as the Raleigh-Durham area.

Group projects included work in the area of light sensitive monitors for the PULSTAR research reactor, nuclear materials and air quality control.

The Young Investigators’ Summer Program (YISP) thanks faculty, staff, university students, corporate contributors (e.g. Duke Energy, Areva, PetNet).

The closing ceremony will be on Friday, July 27 in McKimmon Center starting at 9:30 am.
