Everybody is talking about energy: What is it? Where do I get it? Can I convert it? Where can I put it? What happens when I let it out? Energy and U literally blows the lid off these questions and highlights the many science and technology challenges that energy presents. Learn about energy with an informative slide show set to music and demonstrations that include loud noises, bright flashes, and flames! This semi-annual event brings more than 10,000 students per year to the University of Minnesota campus to learn about energy. Don’t miss out on this one-night-only, all-ages show!
