Doktor Kaboom! Live Wire! The Electricity Tour

July 24 @ 10:00 am - 11:00 am

$8.00

Doktor Kaboom! performs original interactive Science Comedy shows for audiences of all ages. Creatively blending theatre arts with the wonders of scientific exploration, Doktor Kaboom! keeps his crowds riveted with interest and rolling with laughter. Join Kaboom! for a sidesplitting journey of increasingly spectacular (and often successful) science experiments designed to involve, excite, educate, and entertain.

Co-commissioned by the Kennedy Center, LIVE WIRE! The Electricity Tour premiered in Washington, DC in September 2014. Doktor Kaboom! will explore the fundamentals of electrical energy and the history of humanity’s adventures into its potential. At the dawn of the 19th century mankind first harnessed the power of electricity, the world changed and the journey still continues.

Topics covered include: safety; Tesla; Edison; Faraday; lightning bolts, current; voltage; conductive and non-conductive media; electrical arcs; light emission; sparks; resistance; magnetic fields, electric generators: mechanical energy to electrical energy; electromagnetic coils and conductors.
