Feel the Power of The Force
(of Static Electricity)
The Force (of Static Electricity) surrounds us, binds us, and is a whole lot of fun to explore! Come Padawans, learn the secrets of static electricity and join interactive demonstrations on how you can harness its Force to move objects, generate lightning, propel starships, and more. Join me and ‘SH0-K3R’ my 600,000-volt Van de Graaff generator as we show you cool ‘Jedi’ tricks and help you perform more than a few of your own while learning the Physics behind The Force (of static electricity)!
I also have an entertaining, show-stealing Steampunk version of this program by my nefarious alter ego Doktor Silas Conundrum. If you dare, check out Doktor Conundrum's Electric Imaginarium.
Curious to feel the charged atmosphere for yourself, not to mention get a good jolt of nostalgia for our favorite space opera?
