Tesla Coil Design & Operation
Saturday, 7/27/2013
6:00 PM to 8:00 PM
TechShop Pittsburgh

Learn about design methods and operating principles of a traditional spark gap Tesla coil! Mathematical relationships and empirical measurements will be used to gain a greater understanding of high voltage electronics. We will be demonstrating these concepts on a giant homemade Tesla coil!

This is the perfect workshop for high-voltage electronics enthusiasts and for those who want to build their own Tesla coils.
