January 2011 IMPORTANT UPDATE: Due to funding restrictions, we are not currently scheduling any Tesla Coil Demonstrations. Thank you for your understanding.
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 select from the menu on left to find out more about Tesla Coils, our particular Tesla Coil, safety instructions regarding Tesla Coil operation, information about scheduling a Tesla Coil showing at your school, pictures and movies of the Tesla Coil in action, and cool links having to do with Tesla Coils, physics, and science in general.
