Charge Up for an Energy Adventure!

Join University of Alberta energy systems researchers to explore the energizing world around us.

Join us for Future Energy Systems’ third annual Energy Adventure! 

Energy! Climate change! The environment! Do you wonder how it all works? Our Energy Adventurers are ready to take you on a journey to explore energy! 

From sources of electricity to land reclamation to sustainability and more, meet researchers and students as they guide you through hands-on experiments, crafts, and activities. Join over 90 volunteers from the University of Alberta at over 20 activities and get hands-on with energy!

Get creative with energy! Join researchers, students, and more as we explore energy in "Draw Our Energy Future" where you become part of the vision of our future and "Drawing STEAM" where we use shapes to create characters, sources of energy, and more.

Explore the energy all around you! Does your electricity come from the sun, wind, fossil fuels, or something else - find out in "Where Is My Electricity From?" Can you use a balloon to move items - find out in "Shocking Static Electricity." What small changes can you make in your life to reduce your footprint - find out in "Sustainability Actions."

Energy and technology are linked in so many ways. From designing a hydrogen fuel cell powered cars with Ecocar, to exploring ways to store energy, to finding ways to see pollution in our water, it is time to get hands-on with researchers.
