  3. Preparing to play with squishy materials.

    (The materials we used are safe to touch, but we had the students put on gloves so they would be encouraged to touch the materials and engage in the experiments we conducted.)

  4. Prof. Phil Segre does a loud electrical demonstration.

    (A Wimshurst generator.)

  5. Dr. Jed Brody induces electric fields.

    (Jed is holding a tesla coil with his right hand, and inducing a fluorescent bulb to light, held by the students.)

    (Last picture is smashing a frozen banana with a hammer.)
