Science Sunday: Experimenting with the Tesla Coil

The Tesla coil is probably one of the most recognizable science tools around. Today, we are going to have some electrifying fun experimenting with this awesome tool. How exactly does a Tesla coil work? Can it really make a light glow without plugging it in? We are here to answer all those questions and more during this edition of Science Sunday.


The Connecticut Science Center wants to thank all those who serve and protect us every day. To show our appreciation we are offering FREE General Admission to all active, reserve, and retired military, fire, police, state troopers, EMS, and medical personnel. Everyone else who comes out this weekend will receive 50% off General Admission.
