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 continue to be amazed by the apparent superpowers 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 you electrify a pickle.
