Sponsored by the St. Joseph County Public Library and traditionally held in its downtown branch, this annual winter event gives Notre Dame researchers and students the opportunity to share their knowledge of energy with the local community. ND Energy laboratories from across campus prepare enough hands-on activities and demonstrations to fill a room and teach children of all ages and their parents about energy-related topics and issues. Videotaped demonstrations and activities provided by ND Energy research laboratories can be viewed in the Videos section of our Resources page. Summaries of past events can be found at Science Alive Recaps.
