Tennessee Information:

Program Description:
Science leaps from the textbook to the stage in this lively exploration of the nature of electricity. What is it? What does it do for us? Where does it come from? With exciting on-stage demonstrations of Tesla Coils and Van de Graaf Generators, Doktor Kaboom explains voltage, current, charges, energy conservation, plasma and more. Mixing-in equal parts of fact and fun, David Epley’s zany character engages students in a performance that inspires a new attitude and zest for scientific learning. Back by popular demand, the Seattle-based artist also emphasizes the importance of self-confidence, respect for one another and the value of education.
