The Fundamentals Gallery provides a basic understanding of electricity, magnetism, and the electromagnetic spectrum. Through hands-on exhibits the visitor gains a better understanding of the invisible electrical world around us. Without electricity and magnetism we could not have electronics.

In This Exhibit:

  • Learn how electromagnetic waves power our cell phones, cook our food, and help us see into space
  • Become part of a human battery
