Children of all ages will make speakers and magnets, see a Tesla Coil, watch demonstrations involving liquid nitrogen, see sound waves by sprinkling sand on a vibrating place, and become electrified with a Van de Graaff generator. Special demonstrations will be held every hour. Liquid nitrogen ice cream will be provided to all attendees. The event is completely free and appropriate for children of all ages.
