School-Day Show: ArcAttack
Part rock concert, part science experiment, the creators of ArcAttack unveil the science behind the spectacle. Combining their love of music with science, the group invites the audience to explore concepts such as electricity, voltage and current, magnetism, robotics and lightning through a show that's both entertaining and interactive. The audience is engaged from start to finish as the group's trusty, completely automated robot drummer King Beat introduces the audience to the show. The show features their signature tesla coils, as members of the group literally walk through lightning, then invite members of the audience on stage to take part in a special faraday cage dance off!
Creators of the original Singing Tesla Coil, the crew of ArcAttack use their high tech wizardry to generate a truly "electrifying" performance. Combining their love of rock music and their love of science, this is a show you will never forget!
ArcAttack will also present a performance at 7:00 p.m.
Presented by: Caltech Committee on Institute Programs
