Born of a nightmare fueled by an evening of ghost stories, stormy weather & flickering candlelight, Frankenstein has provided 200 years of both mental & visual horrors. It is considered to be the first science fiction novel. It was one of the first horror movies ever made. And, it was written by a teenage girl.
Listen as Professor Steve tells the horrific story of Mary Shelley’s Frankenstein. Marvel at the stories of scientists that influenced Mary Shelley, including details about the real “Dr. Frankenstein”.
Witness the wonder of Frankenstein as Professor Steve demonstrates many of the concepts found in both the book & the movies, including light, anatomy & electricity. Stare in amazement as Professor Steve unleashes the electrical power contained in Frankenstein’s laboratory with his Jacob’s Ladder (17,000 volts), his Wimshurst Static Generator (75,000 volts) & his amazing Tesla Coil (capable of generating almost 750,000 volts of raw electricity). This program is Fun, interactive, educational & great for all ages! Held in the Library meeting room. No registration necessary.
