Nuclear power

Sean M. Warner, a nuclear field coordinator with the Navy Recruiting District of Chicago, spoke to chemistry, AP physics, and environmental science classes about nuclear power during his visit to Lakes on September 21. Warner educated the students about the history and evolution of nuclear power and the role it has played in the military in countries around the world. He also addressed the dangers of nuclear power, citing examples such as the Fukushima Daiichi Nuclear Power disaster following the 2012 tsunami. In addition to the science of nuclear power, Warner explained how joining the Navy and finding a career in nuclear power at the age of 19 changed his life, as he and his family had been homeless prior to that time. Using slides, a dry erase board, and humor, Warner’s presentation captivated the students.
