Hair-raising. Shocking. Hot. Cool. Faster than a speeding bullet!
During our auditorium live stage shows, volunteers from the audience will join our presenters on stage to demonstrate the workings of numerous scientific principles utilizing Van de Graaff generators, electromagnets, step-down transformers, Tesla coils, liquid nitrogen, fire, lasers and more!
All programs are 50 minutes in duration and can accommodate up to 175 students at the Perot Museum, or up to 250 students at your school, available now.
Spark your students' interest in electricity and magnetism with this highly interactive auditorium program. We'll explore the properties of electricity using a Van de Graaff generator and Tesla coil, and we'll cover topics including plasma, electromagnetism, Lenz's Law, direct and alternating currents, Ohm's Law, Joule's Law and transformers. Prepare your students for a truly hair-raising experience as they discover the power of science.
Fire & Ice
This program goes to extremes to teach students about the different states of matter. Using fire and liquid nitrogen, our instructor demonstrates how physical and chemical changes occur. Student volunteers help the presenter explore how temperature affects matter.
Super Hero Science
Superheroes are the stuff of comic books and Hollywood blockbusters. But do your students understand the real science behind their fantastic powers? This educator-led interactive stage show will explore topics including lasers, invisibility, X-ray vision, kinetic energy, levitation and smart materials. This program is available only at the Perot Museum.
