Lawrence Hall of Science in Berkeley

We attended the Wizard's Festival at the Lawrence Hall of Science.

"A ball floats and spins in midair, fingers pass through a seemingly solid object, words whispered into a metal can are heard over 10 feet away — these are just a few of the weird, wondrous, hands-on exhibits found in the Wizard's Lab! As "science wizards," students explore the almost magical properties of matter and energy, participate in high-voltage and subzero experiments, and figure out how things really work in the fun-, fact-, and phenomenon-filled world of physics."

It was a great experience. The staff performed a wonderful show explaining and demonstrating static electricity - highly entertaining and educational.
