    February School Vacation Week: Ben Franklin, Scientist

    Benjamin Franklin experimented with static electricity to discover the properties of lightning. He invited a musical instrument in 1761, and a year later, he discovered the ocean's Gulf Stream through observation! Come experiment to see if static electricity can put your hair on end! See if you can recreate the eerie sounds of his glass harmonica using water glasses, and create your own ocean tide. Activities included in Museum Admission.
