Energy and Light

Years 5-10, Lightning Room show

Set in our purpose-built high voltage Lightning Room laboratory/theatre, which features equipment unique to Scienceworks, this 40-minute presentation will demonstrate four of the states of matter: solids, liquids, gases and plasma.

Students will explore why matter matters and watch what happens when we transform it into light and other forms of energy. They will see that plasma is all around us and discover its importance in our lives.

The Energy and Light Show is rounded off with a lightning demonstration using a two million volt Tesla coil and a discussion of safety in lightning storms.
