VISITORS CENTER

The Visitors Center is open to school groups by appointment only. The Visitors Center offers students an interactive energy adventure that allows them to Discover the Nature of Power. The experience can be tailored to students from grade school to college. The centerpiece of the center is a 26-foot 3D rotating model of the plant that shows the intricate workings of DC Cook nuclear power plant.

Other features of the visitors center include: an interactive electricity generation station where students power lights by peddling a bicycle to turn a generator; exploration of transmission and distribution and how electricity travels to the homes and businesses that use it; an interactive game called chain reaction tag which allow students to visualize how chain reactions are important in nuclear power production; and finally a scavenger hunt that allows students to explore and learn more about nuclear power generation.
