Out of the darkness 300,000 volts explode through the air in our Electricity Lab! Instructors lead students in a hair-raising experience with our giant Van de Graff generator, and launch bolts of lightning from our Tesla Coil. Along with more exciting demonstrations, students explore and gain a real understanding of static, current, voltage, and what electricity is.
The mysterious power of magnets has puzzled even the greatest of scientists. Here, the veil is lifted, as students are able to see the magnetic field that drives it all! From there, students explore the lab on their own to discover how magnets can generate electricity and overpower gravity!
The universe is at the same time held together and pulled apart because of gravity. In this lab, students get a hands on introduction to the way this forms our universe, as well as take a trip into a black hole to see how the recently discovered gravitational waves are formed!
