On April 4, 2012, Glen Rose POWER SET and WIT students had the opportunity to tour the Comanche Peak Power Plant.

The students were very impressed with the tour and enjoyed this visit immensely:
"We learned so much more than we expected. We had the honor of talking with engineers of many types, programmers, and teachers, all of whom taught of things we did not even know there was to learn. They patiently answered our many questions as we toured the training facilities and turbine platform. We saw machines larger than houses which create the power we use every day. They shared a brief history of the plant and showed us what was in the future for Comanche Peak.

It was so interesting to see the passion each employee of Comanche Peak had for his/her job. Everyone we encountered was excited to share his/her expertise with us. The main focus of all they do there is on safety. You can be sure that whatever project they are working on, safety will always be the primary consideration.

After the tour, we had a great time eating pizza and discussing the day. Comanche Peak has been very generous to the students of POWER SET and WIT. We realize that this was a unique opportunity. We are grateful to Comanche Peak for a great experience."
