The Invaders brought home "The Bell" in 2016 and the Technology Club wanted to congratulate them with music and a little electricity courtesy of two Tesla coils. The Technology Club salutes the West Scranton Invaders Football Team for bringing home the bell. A high voltage Tesla Coil salute!
Jacob's Ladder is a high voltage climbing arc. The 15,000 volt difference between the two copper pipes creates a very high electric field and ionizes the air molecules. The air changes from an insulator to a conductor and an electric arc forms that "climbs up the ladder". Created by AP Physics and Mr. McGraw's gifted students Danny Sallurday and Jake MacDonald class of 2016.
The 2012-2013 AP Physics class put together the classic oil drum implosion demonstration. The video shows the incredible pressure of the earth's atmosphere that is always present around us but that we seldom perceive.
