Museum Exhibit is an Electricity Show

The Franklin Institute located in Philadelphia will soon open their newest exhibit, ‘Electricity,’ based on Ben Franklin‘s most practical contribution to science: electricity. The exhibit which will feature a dance floor (the harder you dance, the brighter the LED lights in the floor will glow), a wall that lights up due to electromagnetic transmission from nearby cell phones, a giant Tesla coil (a device that emits four-foot-long sparks), Franklin’s 5-foot-long fragment of a lightning rod and much more, will open on March 27.

To read more about what the exhibit has to offer, visit The Daily Magazine’s article at http://www.philly.com/inquirer/magazine/87636052.html.

Looks like a visit to the museum is in my near future…
