Explosions, flames and rock music and are all a part of a unique University of Minnesota outreach program that aims to interest elementary school students in science.

The annual Energy and U shows, put on by the College of Science and Engineering, are expected to attract around 5,000 students to the University of Minnesota campus.

Monday was the first day of shows.

Students learn about energy with an informative slideshow set to music and demonstrations that include loud explosions, bright flashes, flames and a dance party.

There will be three events per day at Smith Hall. The shows end on Jan. 17.
