The history of electricity began thousands of years ago. People made observations and performed experiments that led to our electrically powered modern world. Way back then, no one knew of the tiny particle of energy that made it all possible: the electron. Join us on a trip through 20,000 years of history to meet the people who made the future. This travel back in time explains the origins of electricity and magnetism. From viewing a lightning storm with a cave-person 20,000 years ago, kids will zip through time, past the point where magnetism was discovered, and briefly pause to “become” magnetism. Our trip continues through Greece and China, where the word ‘electricity’ was conceived. Students will then watch Benjamin Franklin coin the word ‘battery’ and understand its function 40 years later in Italy, with the help of a frog. Warning: Fun will be had, and audience participation is a must.
