Celebrate Science -- 5th Annual Livermorium Day Celebration

The Livermore City Council invites the community to the 5th Annual Livermorium Day Celebration on Thursday, May 25, 2017 from 4-5 pm at Livermorium Plaza at Mills Square Park, 116 South Livermore Avenue (corner of First Street and South Livermore Avenue).  The program will include guest speakers amd presentations of several science awards:  the 15th Congressional District App Challenge Winners, Science Odyssey Awards, Gold Ribbon Award, and the Lawrence Livermore National Laboratory Edward Teller Awards.  Light refreshments will be served, and the youth band "Element 116" will once again perform.

On June 2013, Mayor John Marchand established Livermorium Day in May to recognize the creation of chemical element 116 which was named in honor of the City and a team of scientists from the Lawrence Livermore National Laboratory who collaborated with a team from Russia.  Livermore is one of only six cities in the world for which an element has been named that appears on the Periodic Table of Elements.
