STEM Pioneer Shows Us The Light!
Tesla was a dreamy kid when he had his first big idea and when he moved to America, his dreams and his new engineering ideas sailed with him. Tesla's bright ideas about electricity still bring light to our homes at night. Learn about Tesla and the battles he had to fight to do just that and watch how electricity is created right in front of you.
Author/Illustrator will read from “Bright Dreams, The Brilliant Inventions Of Nikola Tesla” and talk about Tesla’s challenges and his difficult path to inventing the A/C Generator. She’ll explain and demonstrate how electricity is generated with spinning magnets and wire and show the difference between A/C and D/C electricity.
PDF sent to listeners before the program with do-it-yourself experiments to play with static electricity and learn about electric circuitry using batteries and simple materials.
