INL hosts Future Net-Zero Innovators student symposium
IDAHO FALLS, Idaho (KIFI) - A student-led symposium was held at INL's campus in Idaho Falls to discuss topics covering energy saving solutions. Boise State University, Idaho State University and University of Idaho collectively teamed up with INL to host this event.
Many undergraduate and graduate level students from all over the Mountain West were able to showcase their topics. Topics included Energy storage, renewable sources, and nuclear energy.
The chair of the symposium is Kaelee Novich. She is a graduate student at Boise State University who is also an intern at the Idaho National Lab. She is helping INL to be net-zero in energy emissions by 2031.
Other students have continued to mention that childhood inspirations and internships have been the biggest things pushing them through their journeys in Energy efficiency and Nuclear Power.
The symposium lasts three days and will conclude on Friday. On the last day, they will hand out awards for best speaker, best presentation, and best poster.
Anyone is welcome to attend a poster night on Friday night from 5 p.m to 7 p.m. at the Center for Advanced Energy Studies on INL's campus in Idaho Falls. Undergraduate students will present their own research posters there.
