Students from multiple disciplines at Blackhawk High School found solutions for unique challenges facing the nuclear industry. These included:


  • Vignettes of social perspectives and reactions of a Nuclear Power Station being built in your backyard in their Creative Writing Course with Mr. Moser.

  • Designing promotional nuclear power posters in their Graphic Design Course with Ms. Biega.

  • A 3D printed power station and team building exercise through turbine design in their TSA Course with Mr. Moll.

  • Analyzing the costs of building and operating various power stations in an Algebra Course with Ms. Bender.

  • Examining how to reach acceptable environmental release limits of radioactive nuclides chromium and krypton in their AP Environmental Science Course with Mr. Puskas.


The overall goal is applying their coursework to solve real-world problems and building on creativity, collaboration, and critical thinking skills.
