General Presentations Program

Short introduction about Nikola Tesla and the Society
15 minutes movie about Nikola Tesla from Nikola Tesla Museum in Belgrade
Life and work of great Nikola Tesla presentation (adjusted to students grades and knowledge)
Stories about energy flow in nature and how Tesla helped to harness energy for humanity
Tesla globe presentation
Levitating Nikola bulb presentation
Questions and free books about Nikola Tesla presented to your school library

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, they participated in the demonstration and the discussion continued after the end of the class, for as long as time permitted.

Hi Fred and Peter,
A HUGE thank you from Dr. Egbert. Friday was a wonderful day of science exploration, history and current energy resources. Even though our classes were small and my students at times provide challenges, they really enjoyed your presentation and many commented on it today, especially talking to those who were away. "you missed out on a cool presentation" "Tesla - no not the car - THE GUY" were over heard today. Thanks for inspiring my students. It was amazing.
