At age 11, while in 7th grade, Kenneth Andrew Kienlen wrote his first paper about nuclear power for an English class. This is a paper written four years later at age 15 in 11th grade. He did a superlative report again in 11th grade. We wish government leaders would do as well with long term energy planning as this Advocate from Texas. Kenneth went on to graduate from Texas A&M in nuclear engineering. We wish him the best in the future. Go Nuclear.
At age 11, while in 7th grade, Kenneth Andrew Kienlen had a writing assignment for English class. He went to the library at the University of North Texas to do his own independent research. The following report is the result. His grandfather, Don Riley, was a pioneer in development of fast breeder reactors. So he may have had a little inspiration before going to the library. He did a superlative report in 7th grade. We wish government leaders would go to a library and make an attempt to learn about the importance of safe, reliable, affordable energy for the world for centuries to come, not just promote the latest trends. Kenneth went on to graduate from Texas A&M in nuclear engineering. We wish him the best in the future. Go Nuclear.
Daniel Meneley's summary of fossil fuel and nuclear energy sources for generating electricity for world needs is very succinct and complete.
