NWMO Trade Show Booth Attracts Lots of Interest from University Students

Numerous university students were among the visitors to the NWMO

Two of the students who visited the NWMO's trade show booth at the 2015 CNA Conference and Trade Show.

Interested, enthusiastic and eager to access information about nuclear waste best describe these young university students who stopped by our booth at the recent Canadian Nuclear Association (CNA) Conference and Trade Show held in Ottawa.

We attend many conferences on an annual basis to provide young people, industry professionals, elected representatives and staff, First Nation and Métis communities, and many others with opportunities to learn more about Canada’s plan for the long-term management of used nuclear fuel. A visit to our booth provides opportunities for face-to-face discussions with friendly staff who are happy to answer questions and listen to comments. 

These delegates, and many others who stopped by our booth, enjoyed the hands-on experience of handling interactive props such as ceramic fuel pellets, a fuel bundle and a model of a used fuel container.
