    POWER SET - which stands for Powerful Opportunities for Women Eager and Ready for Science, Engineering, and Technology - provides high school girls with educational tools and essential support and professional opportunities.

    Each POWER SET member receives a pearl necklace which shows the world her commitment to the program and its goals. Pearls are the world's oldest gems, treasured for centuries for their smooth finish and warm glow, and are often the first jewels young women receive. Highly prized for their myth and perceived magic, pearls represent the ideals of POWER SET: overcoming adversity through hard work, persistence, and tenacity. Pearls also signify purity, perfection and feminine charm.

    Participants enjoy mentoring by industry professionals, visit local industry partners, participate in industry job shadowing, take part in professional development activities, visit universities and community colleges, hear from and meet guest speakers, have scholarship opportunities, and give back by mentoring middle school students.

    POWER SET is a high school outreach initiative of the Nuclear Power Institute, a unique statewide partnership led by the Texas Engineering Experiment Station and headquartered at Texas A&M University. Inductees must have a 3.5 grade point average, be enrolled in college readiness classes, demonstrate a strong aptitude for math or science, and complete an interview.
