The exhibition, which is comprised of sixteen hands-on interactives, engages visitors in the many fascinating facets of electricity. The Franklin Institute, whose namesake conducted the famous ‘kite and key’ scientific explorations of electricity, has developed the exhibition, which is currently on a touring circuit of the country.

Aiming to connect guests with the fundamental properties of electricity, “Electricity” invites you to: Become a human battery; Learn how to operate a telegraph; Be shocked by an electrostatic generator; Find out if you are attracted to magnets; and many other intriguing activities.

Founded in honour of America’s first scientist, Benjamin Franklin, The Franklin Institute is one of America’s oldest and premier centres of science education and development in the United States.
