On the 26th of February the students and campus coordinator of Campus Zurich visited the local nuclear plant in Böttstein, Switzerland. The visit started off with a tour through Axporama. Axporama is the visitor center and is staging the “Life with Energy” exhibition. With interactive exhibits spread across the room that invited our students to experiment and explore the fascinating world of electricity they could experience the climate theatre, play electricity manager, and discover the three-dimensional relief model of Switzerland. And after the exhibition our students were invited to have lunch at Axporama’s cafeteria.
The second part of the visit consisted of a guided tour of the nuclear power plant, enabling our students to gain a more practical understanding of what they had learned in the Axporama exhibition. After their interesting visit at the nuclear plant our students had the chance to satisfy their doubts and curiosities from one of the managers at the plant.
