Zap, Crackle and Pop: The David Allen-Booth Memorial Lecture

Event date: 20th March 2015

Visitors joined Dr Marty Jopson, the BBC One Show’s resident scientist, as he took a sparky journey through the story of electricity. Do you know the difference between current and voltage? With the aid of the audience, Marty explained. From the Ancient Greeks, through Faraday’s genius, this show put the awesome back into electricity. You may think we have electricity tamed, but are you sure? Chock full of demonstrations and a plucked chicken, visitors got an electrifying performance!
