On Monday, November 14th, NPI hosted our first “Powerful Opportunities for Women Eager and Ready for Science, Engineering, and Technology (POWER SET) Green” and “Getting Resilient on Engineering and Energy from Nuclear (GREEN) Day for Educators” event, and it was an absolute success! Our POWER SET participants attended dressed for success and ready to learn from our outstanding experts. NPI and their network of educators continue to work hard to ensure all students are workforce ready. Our educators continually go the extra mile to assist us in meeting our mission, and we are so thankful that they were able to join us. NPI is assured that the Texas Workforce is secure with these young ladies and educators leading the way.
