Tesla Society News


Mar 2018 - The Society delivered the first Nikola Tesla presentations to Calgary school! Two presentations were delivered by CTS's Dr Majda Djordjevic. Each was attended by 2 classes of grade 5 students, their science teachers and the school principal. At the beginning, a movie “Nikola Tesla - Spirit, Work, Vision” was shown by special permission of the Nikola Tesla Museum in Belgrade. Based on the movie and students’ knowledge about electromagnetism, a discussion was developed in which students actively participated. At the end, experiments with plasma globe were performed. They, in their rudimentary form were discovered by Nikola Tesla. Students’ interest surpassed our expectations so that the discussion continued after the end of the class, as long as the time permitted.
