Thank you to Ginny Herron, student intern, for her considerable energy in helping make this quest happen.

Ginny began by conducting independent research into the game platform and visiting each location, where she recorded her observations and questions. Then, she constructed the Energy Quest game including coding and creating word problems, storylines, pictures and audio. In collaboration with the Quest team who provided goals, questions and feedback, the Energy Quest was launched on December 16th, 2020.

I learned astonishing facts about Livermore that should certainly be shared with the public. It is truly amazing how much historical significance this town contains. The various energy forms are extensive and impressive. I sincerely hope that you enjoy the Energy Quest and you can expect more of these Quests in the future!

Explore Energy at Daybreak Labs in Livermore Through the End of December!

This new exhibit demonstrates how energy storage is used to make intermittent renewable energy more reliable. See it in action at Daybreak Labs, 1911 2nd Street, Livermore, CA.

Thank you to Dennis O’Brien, retired Chief Electronics Engineer with Lawrence Livermore National Laboratory, who designed and built this exhibit, and to our partners, East Bay Community Energy, the Rotary Foundation of Livermore and Lawrence Livermore National Laboratory for making this possible.
