This is my first visit to Wonderopolis. I am here with 3 very curious students from Ms. Thiessen’s class. We are wondering about the video. We all wonder what was that machine that made the electricity? Keerit is wondering how did the man in the video survive? And also – why did the electricity in the video change color? Jackson wants to know how the man is still alive. Maven is wondering what is the man in the video holding in his hand? We all thought the video was very interesting!

Welcome to Wonderopolis, Mrs. Kolbus! We think it’s AWESOME that you, Keerit, Jackson and Maven are all WONDERing so much about the video for today’s Wonder of the Day®!
The machine in the video is called a Tesla Coil. Because we choose videos from many different places to accompany our Wonders of the Day, we don’t always know everything about the people in them. We make sure the videos are safe for our Wonder Friends to view, though!
You guys might want to WONDER more about Tesla Coils by going on a Wonder Journey to search for answers! We hope you do, and that you let us know what you find out…we would like to WONDER more about Tesla Coils, too!
