2022 Science Alliance Event

The 2022 US Department of Energy’s Science Alliance will take place Oct. 4-6 at the former gaseous diffusion plant in Piketon.

Students from 32 schools from the surrounding counties will experience a fun, interactive event to engage high school juniors in all things science.

More than 14,000 students have attended Science Alliance over the years. Each year the program grows, providing new opportunities for students to discover the possibilities a future in science can provide. After two years without this event, we know we are coming back bigger and better with hands-on learning opportunities, site tour and lots of fun.

Students will move through the stations in small groups, giving everyone a chance to talk to industry professionals about their careers. In addition to the science stations, students will also get a chance to engage with area universities including: The Ohio State University, Ohio University, Shawnee State University, University of Rio Grande, Hocking College, Southern State Community College, Ohio Christian University, Morehead State University, Marietta College and more.

Our last event, held in 2019, showcased several of the largest employers in our region, including: Kenworth Trucking, General Electric, General Mills and the Ohio State Highway Patrol.

Schools can secure their spot today by emailing Deneen Garner, lead community relations specialist at Fluor-BWXT at or calling 740.897.2609 and specifying which day your school would like to attend:

  • Tuesday, Oct. 4
  • Wednesday, Oct. 5
  • Thursday, Oct. 6

Don’t wait to send your preference—these spots always fill quickly!

We will be sending a second letter at the beginning of the school year that will provide more information and will include more instructions and a form to be filled out for participating students to also include their T-shirt size.

We look forward to seeing you in the fall. If you have any questions, please call 740.897.2609.
