“Science You Can See (and Hear)”

Jumping rings, Chladni plates, electromagnets, standing waves, resonating pipes, and a large Rubens’ tube are just some of the things you will encounter during this year’s Faraday Lecture as the team of Colin Gould and Gregg Gould present “Science You Can See (and Hear)”.

The Gould team will perform a series of engaging, intriguing, and educational demonstrations using unusually large equipment, specifically designed to make various science principles clearly visible and audible to the audience. The demonstrations will be in two general areas –electromagnetic induction and sound – and audience volunteers will participate in a number of the demonstrations.

You’ll be on the edge of your seat watching science in action!
