The information centers hold a number of events for the general public. For example, in 2011 the fifth annual Small Festival of MARIONETTES (Malý festival LOUTKY) was enriched with the addition of an art competition for children. Children drew pictures inspired by the marionette theatre play they watched. Then, fourteen out of 100 artists received awards at the Dukovany Nuclear Power Station Information Center. The 13 runners-up received orange lamps, while the absolute winner, five-year-old Adam Večeřa from Budkovice, received a soft blanket in addition. All of the works will be on display at next year’s festival.

On December 3, 2011, a total of 142 guests had the opportunity to take a tour that took them through two power plant information centers, the simulator of a Dukovany Nuclear Power Station reactor control room, and the Dalešice hydro power plant operation. During the tour, they all met St. Nicholas and his faithful sidekicks – the Devil and the Angel. At the end of the tour, all participants received small presents and good season’s wishes.

In 2011, Temelín Nuclear Power Station organized its seventh annual sports and entertainment event Temelín Atomic Olympics (Temelínská atomiáda) for children, in front of the plant’s information center. Nearly 200 children from six primary schools in the vicinity of the Temelín plant took part in the event. The winner of the contest was Týn nad Vltavou, Hlinecká Primary School.
