Event Details

Rocking the Free Power (Gerald Wheatley)

Learn how music and electricity are connected, and rock out! “Electromagnetic induction” is the science behind the electricity generation, electric guitar pickups and speaker amplification. Students will be part of a mash-up of people-powered electricity, open-heart guitar surgery and cranking up the amps and laser lightshow! Look inside an electricity generator, AC/DC inverter, ultracapacitor, guitar pickup and a speaker. Learn how much electricity is required to run these types of instruments by powering them yourself! Participants can also find out the difference between clean and dirty electricity. This activity fits with mechanical, energy, and environmental curriculum concepts.
Gerald Wheatley is a musician and music producer who has taken pedal powered music into the Stampede Parade and a hundred events to promote electricity and environmental awareness.
