UCSC PHYSICS/SCIPP OUTREACH
| ABOVE: Faculty and researchers from UC Santa Cruz sponsored Balloon Fest at Endeavour Academy at Paso Robles High School in April 2004. Balloon Fest allows high school students and their advisors to design, conduct and present atmospheric research.
The Santa Cruz Institute for Particle Physics' Outreach Program gets students electrified about learning physics using a Tesla Coil which generates dazzling electrical arcs about 5 feet (1.5 meters) in length. You can have a Tesla Coil Demonstration at your school to get your students charged up to learn about physics.
Please visit the Tesla
Coil website to find out more about Tesla Coils, our particular
Tesla Coil, safety instructions regarding Tesla Coil operation,
pictures and movies of the Tesla Coil in action, and cool
links having to do with Tesla Coils, physics, and science
in general. If you would like to have a demonstration at your
school, please contact the UCSC
Tesla Coil Outreach program.
