Open to school groups by reservation, the newly remodeled Cook Energy Center offers students a fast-paced energy adventure to let them Discover the Nature of Power. The experience can be tailored to students from grade school to college. The centerpiece is a 26-foot 3D rotating model of the plant that shows the intricate working of a nuclear power plant.

There are numerous hands-on interactive exhibits, and plenty of supporting data for those who love to get into the details. Additional activities like an age appropriate “information scavenger hunt” tied to school curriculum makes this a fun AND interactive learning experience for students.

There are also nature trails that wind through the dunes and woods, leading to a beautiful overlook of Lake Michigan. Fill out the request form so your school group can Discover the Nature of Power.


Besides being emission-free, the nuclear industry is committed to protecting the environment. Cook cares about southwest Michigan.


The interactive learning experience can be adapted for groups as young as 3rd grade through college age. We can accommodate groups up to 80 and require a minimum of 15 student age visitors for a tour. We try our best to accommodate all requests the best we can.
