In this age where most countries are terrified by the word nuclear power or nuclear energy, 16-year-old Nigerian Steven Udotong who is a high school student from Southern New Jersey in the United States, has taking it upon himself to prove to the whole world that common knowledge based on the subject matter is not very correct.
Steven Udotong believes that nuclear energy is an achievable alternate source of power and has started working on developing a nuclear energy fusor all by himself.
in his words, the young engineer said….
“I grew curious after we flew by the topic of nuclear energy in my chemistry class last year. I decided to do more research and I soon learned that I could actually make a nuclear fusor. That sparked my interest. I want people to know that there are alternate methods for obtaining power and energy.”
“I want to examine more clean energy products and stop fearing the word “nuclear”. Nuclear energy is a lot safer than people think.”
To enable him carry out his project effectively, he started a fund me page, but he was overwhelmed by the response which exceeded his target and that made his project very successful.
He is at the finishing stage of the project and will need $750 to complete it this time.

I’d like to conduct some experiments with deuterium fusion and join the Neutron Club on fusor.net . I also plan to enter this project in science fairs and competitions whenever I have the chance and to pursue scholarship opportunities.
More generally, I’d like for this project to generate awareness for more sustainable energy sources for the future. My goal is to start a conversation at the state – and even the federal – level about more serious action towards adopting alternative energy sources. I figure that if a high school student can do this, there’s no excuse for any of us.
