2023 ANS Annual Meeting Speaker
Grace Stanke Fast Facts
"In addition to helping change public perception of nuclear energy and technology, I hope to inspire youth, especially young girls, to explore STEM and to see that going into these fields, including nuclear engineering, is an option for them."
- Grace Stanke. Miss America 2023
Clean Energy, Cleaner Future
Grace is inspiring worldwide political change for clean zero-carbon emission energy sources, and the next generation of scientists, engineers, and mathematicians. She emphasizes the benefits of nuclear power in the pursuit of a zero-carbon future through her social impact initiative, "Clean Energy, Cleaner Future." The use of nuclear power as a source of clean energy has little public acceptance and is often overlooked. Yet, it provides an economical, reliable, and safer means of powering our country without carbon emission. By providing children their first exposure to the word "nuclear," Grace hopes to establish a new high school curriculum to include nuclear physics.
