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 science, the show meets Common Core, NSE, and NGSS standards relating to engineering and design. The show has a narrative thread where a band is about to go on tour, but the equipment is all broken. Audience members help ArcAttack solve problems, learn about the scientific method and rules of engineering, as well as apply critical thinking skills. Together, they fix the gear, culminating in an epic rock show with lightning! ArcAttack strives to be a leader in “edu-tainment” inspiring students to pursue interests in physics, mathematics, chemistry, and engineering. In an era where science is no longer deemed “cool,” there finally is a show teaching students the fundamentals of science and technology, sparking imaginations and leaving students yearning for more.
