Shocking Discoveries

This show is all about electricity. The show begins with a discussion of one of the most prevalent types of electricity in the world – static electricity. Students learn that static is much more than just an annoying shock they can experience on a dry winter day – it can make their hair stand on end, levitate objects, and even produce indoor lightning. Students continue to be amazed by the apparent super powers they are given by Center educators when they are able to illuminate a fluorescent bulb in the palm of their hand. This program’s grand finale investigates what happens when one electrifies a pickle.
