Spark your students’ curiosity for science and technology with Electricity. Electricity is a multi-sensory, hands-on exhibit focusing on concepts such as static electricity and live current, motors, battery technology, attraction and repulsion, magnetic fields and many other fundamental principles of electricity. Visitors safely explore these themes through nineteen interactive stations where rings dance above the Jumping Ring, magnets float in the air, electric volts pass through a Jacob’s Ladder, and telegraphs send secret messages in Morse code. Join the ranks of Benjamin Franklin and discover the science behind currents, volts, magnets, and more with Electricity.
This exhibit was developed by The Franklin Institute, Philadelphia, Pennsylvania and is sponsored locally by the GEHC Foundation.
