Badger Talks Live: "The Physics of Plasma" (Recommended for ages 6 and up)

Speaker: Mike Randall

Event Details

Tuesday, June 2, 2020
12 p.m.
Physics is the study of how things move, how they push and pull on each other, and how they exchange energy. In this Badger Talk, Mike will focus on plasmas: what they are, where they can be found, and what we can do with them. Audience members will be entertained and amazed by fun, fast-paced demonstrations of various plasma devices, including a plasma globe, plasma rocket, Van de Graaff generator, Jacobs ladder, and Tesla coils.
