John Wagner, NucE’92, recently wrote an op-ed detailing how Idaho National Laboratory (INL) offers an opportunity for engineers. The article appeared in the Magic Valley Times-News in Idaho. Wagner is associate laboratory director, nuclear science and technology directorate, at the Idaho facility.

“As I contemplated a column for National Engineers Week, my thoughts turned not to the typical newspaper reader, but to their children and grandchildren — our future,” wrote Wagner. “I imagine it is difficult for young people to envision themselves as engineers at the nation’s lead laboratory for nuclear energy research and development. Yet, INL has an extremely bright future to offer young people; and, if cultivated, engineering can become their passion through which they can make a significant positive difference.”
