HyDro Think Tank at clean currents
The Hydro Think Tank “Unplugged” ™ is a student-industry opportunity designed to attract and recruit bright, capable students to hydropower. Think Tank “Unplugged” combines the impactful Think Tank™ program and the widely popular Hiring for Hydro™ program, our hydro industry’s jobs fair.
The Hydro Think Tank “Unplugged”™ will challenge interdisciplinary undergraduate students from various academic programs to offer unique solutions to a hydropower challenge. In addition, students will get the opportunity to share their resumes, gain insightful career advice, gain introductions to industry leaders, and learn about the hydropower industry through an insider's lens by participating in the Clean Currents Conference.
This is a unique opportunity for students interested in renewable energy to obtain real work experience with a team of like-minded students from surrounding regional universities.
Clean Currents 2021 is the all-new, official waterpower tradeshow + conference of the National Hydropower Association. Clean Currents will showcase innovative solutions, thought leadership, and exclusive educational opportunities. Clean Currents is located at the Georgia World Congress Center in Atlanta, GA.
Educate University Students about the benefits and value of hydropower through real work-life experience and provide students with the opportunity to network with potential future employers.
The Hydropower Foundation has received amazing feedback from students, most of whom indicated a “new” interest in pursuing a career in the hydropower industry, innovative solutions to a real-world challenge, solid relationships with utility leaders, and career and internship opportunities they wouldn't have gained otherwise.
