Open to school groups by reservation, the newly remodeled Cook Energy Center offers students a fast-paced energy adventure to let them Discover the Nature of Power. The experience can be tailored to students from grade school to college. The centerpiece is a 26-foot 3D rotating model of the plant that shows the intricate working of a nuclear power plant.

There are numerous hands-on interactive exhibits, and plenty of supporting data for those who love to get into the details. Additional activities like an age appropriate “information scavenger hunt” tied to school curriculum makes this a fun AND interactive learning experience for students.

There are also nature trails that wind through the dunes and woods, leading to a beautiful overlook of Lake Michigan. Fill out the request form so your school group can Discover the Nature of Power.


Besides being emission-free, the nuclear industry is committed to protecting the environment. Cook cares about southwest Michigan.


Discover the Nature of Power at the Cook Energy Center. The interactive learning experience can be adapted for all age groups. School groups larger than 15 can request a curriculum-based tour. We will try to accommodate your request the best we can.
