TYLER, March 18, 2013--Motivation Science is bringing Arc Attack to the Tyler Maker Faire, which is taking place on Saturday, March 23, from 9:00 a.m. – 5:00 p.m. The innovative music group that was a contestant on America’s Got Talent, uses Tesla Coils to create music.
ArcAttack's band members churn out rhythmic instrumental melodies using two custom-engineered hand built Tesla Coils that throw out electrical arcs up to 12 feet long, each one acting as an instrument with a sound reminiscent of a synthesizer. Robotic drums accompany the spectacle, and high power LED's flash bright colors with the stroke of each mechanically actuated stick. The ArcAttack MC walks through a half-million volt sparks wearing a Faraday suit—a thin layer of chain mail. This high power performance is unique, mesmerizing and thrilling.
ArcAttack strives to be a leader in educational entertainment inspiring students across the world to pursue their interest in physics, mathematics, chemistry and engineering. They often speak to school groups using a curriculum based 60 minute school time show for children that meet National Science Education Standards.
“We see ArcAttack as a fun example of what Motivation Science does in the classroom—providing young people with investigations and activities that make students excited and enthusiastic about learning science” says Michael Lujan, Founder of Mentoring Minds and power behind Motivation Science.
In addition to ArcAttack, the Maker Faire will feature approximately 25 exhibitors showcasing irreverent to functional creations that the attendees can attempt to create as well.
“The Maker spectacle of science, technology, engineering and arts perfect for Discovery Science Place” says CEO Phil Lindsey. “ArcAttack exemplifies that.”
“Science is about exploring, experimenting, re-conceiving and examining ideas and using good old fashion ingenuity to bring what was created to fruition. Maker Faire does that in many different ways that are unique, interesting to watch, exciting to do and easy to re-imagine in contexts that engage the participants.
Tickets are $12 for adults and $8 for children in advance, and $15 for adults and $10 for kids at the door. This includes admission to the museum.
