ZAP! Expect a hair raising performance

A live, online show for schools and festivals
Join Dr Marty Jopson, the BBC One Show’s resident scientist as he takes a sparky journey through the story of electricity. Do you know the difference between current and voltage? With the aid some glowing electrons, Marty will explain. From the Ancient Greeks, through Faraday’s genius, this show aims to put the awesome back into electricity. With a one million Volt spark and not one, but two Telsa coils, you may think we have electricity tamed, but are you sure? A show chock full of demonstrations: the astonishing floating orb, a light bulb made from a pencil lead and lemon that gives the promise of electricity. A full stage version of this show can be watched here.
