About Energy and U

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 during this 50-minute interactive show that includes demonstrations, dancing, bright flashes, and flames! You might even be chosen as a volunteer from the audience to help with one of the demonstrations.
