TURN YOUR SOUND DOWN❗️ (If you think that’s loud, you should hear it in person!) This is a posting from my daughter’s new science- and math-based Instagram account, @expeditionbooth ! I came up with the name. (Thank you very much!) 👏🏼 She is a 6th grade science and math teacher. This is one of her postings - *************************** This giant, ceiling mounted 20 ft. Tesla coil is one of my favorite parts of @msichicago ! Nikola Tesla developed the Tesla coil in 1891 as a way of wirelessly transmitting electricity. So, does wireless electricity exist? At the museum, the presenter had one of the audience members hold up a fluorescent light bulb (similar to the ones we have in our classroom) and, as you can see in the 2nd video, the Tesla coil made it light up without any connection at all! So, if Tesla’s invention worked, why do we still use wires to run electricity through our houses today? Tell me what you think in the comments down below! ⚡️ #teslacoil #msichicago #alwayslearning #science #stem #STEAM 🔬+📐 #repost #chicago #travel #instachicago #instatravel #travelgram #videooftheday

    Sounds like witless internet for electricity. Must be expensive or not feasible on a grand scale.
